The original plan for a Wagner Theatre for 
the presentation of music dramas after the com- 
poser's own Ideas, called for Ita erection In 
Munich, but Richard Wagner felt that the works 
would be more effective If their bearera were re- 
moved from a large city, and Bayreuth was 
selected. King Ludwtg II, of Bavaria, gave prac- 
tical support to the plan, and the municipality of 
Bayreuth assisted. The necessary fund* were 
raised by Wagner societies all over the world snd 
by the Issuance of certificates of patronage. Tic 
work of construction was begun In 1872. and the 
first complete performance waa gives four years

'round town, and got gloriously 'drunk. He 
could not remember where hp lived, so the 
cabmen and the police searched him. un- 
fortunately, tho reveller had annexed the 
overcoat of a distinguished professor, whose 
card was found. When a drunken little man 
was tumbled Into her bedroom, nnd collapsed 
Into an armchair. Mrs. Professor took h ra 
for her husband, and rated him solemnly. 
Then she saw that It was a stranger, she 
had riot recovered her self-possession ere her

I understand that Oswald Stoll wilt chance

Meanwhile. It docs not appear to the out- 
sider that there Is any falling off In the pop- 
ularity of tho French revue. A fifth, en- 
titled "Vive I/Amour," was Installed on Mon- 
day and seemed most acceptable. It begins 
with tho marriage »f a country couple, and 
follows them to Paris, where many scenes 
nro enncted of (ho cuGtomary kind. A gentle-

but finds it better than tho Bngllshi revues,

Involving S85.00O. on the plea that his 
health, and particularly his voice, caused 
lilm grave concern. Then he went to tho 
Oaletv and the I<ondon Theatres of Varieties 
brought suit. Evans declared that he was 
quite cqun! to tho strain of lighter work on 
the theatrical stage. Celebrated urtlstB were 
lined up on cither side to say whether Hie 
vaudeville work or that of the theatres In- 
volves .the (/renter ncrre strain. Tho judge 
decided for Evans, declaring that theatre was 
more delicate and suitable to a man no

About Peccary Dauichcrty. 
"It Isn't often that we are treated to a 
grand opera voice In vaudeville, but that's 
what the public will find at the Academy as 
part of the week end bill. The cantntrlce 
with this big calibre voice Is Peggy Dough- 
erty, and besides her splendid voice she has 
all the other attributes that lend to success 
In the higher circles of the musical world • 
comeliness, personality and magnetism. 

"Study at Milan, Italy, has given to Miss 
Daugherty's powerful soprano that culti- 
vated tone and expression which distinguishes 
the real singer, and her appearance in vaude- 
ville is probnbly only a stepping stone to 
higher ami better things. Her splendid voice 
will carry her there." 

This from the Norfolk Lcdqcr-Dlipatch, 
while "Peg" showed in the Vlrglnny city last 
week. This is the self-same Peggy who 
posed in Milan for Maldrelll, the celebrated 
Italian sculptor, while she was studying 
music there, for the greatest piece of neck 
and arm work he ever did model out. Some 
voice, some neck and arms, some Peg. Right 1

band up while at the turning point the hue- 
band comes to the actress' apartment The

nounces the woman, who takes it all, letting 
him go back to bis family. It la a wonderful 
piece of acting on the part of tbe actress. A 
great sketch, and headed for the two-a-day.

"Off with the New Lore, On with the Old" 
rhymed well with the fittings of this bouse 
when we dropped tw last Thursday, May 28, 
and found Jake Lubln's managerial throne 
again filled by Charles Seward, who, since 
leaving this house as manager previous to 
Burlesque Jake's reign, hat been tyerfoTEtlng 
In tbe same capacity at tbe Boulevard. 

Some one on Seventh Avenue whispered 
it that Hon. Charlie waa happy. ^X 00, 
Charlie looked happy and we found Bias 
happy, for another owl trickled it Into our 
domestic ears that ho bad wished to return 
to his "eld love," but "they" said otherwise 
down in "tb e office," they did, to when Jake 
Lubln rushed Westward in tbat automobile a 
week ago Monday, his youthful bot thor- 
oughly competent assistant manager, Joe 
Togel, was left in charge of doings In Har-

El Cieve, the kittle garbed xylophone art-

Carmen's Minstrels, composed of eight 
men in black face, ana a woman interlocutor 
(without foe stove polish), -followed In, and 
were a great olg successful act of fan and 
songs. Within a good special minstrel set 
their RsemMes, quartettes and solo num- 
bers were all rendered in Teal showmanship 
style while the gags between the "lnterlocu- 
trees and the ends and their leading "Bold- 
Up Rag" for a final number. Joined by the 
rest of the troupe, made good for laughs, 
and gave evidence of artistic direction. Asa 
"minstrel," Carmen's company of nine equals 
any of Its Bind seen in the city this season, 
and some previous ones. 

Blanche C. Truesdell had a rather nasty 
spot to fill after so much singing lust ahead 
of her, but after her "College Education" 
and "You're Tickling Me" were fairly well 
treated, she began to "get them" with "I 
Could Never Get Used to That " and closed 
with a display of graceful dancing In a neat 
white clingy accordion plaited dress that 
permitted her ability and a neat form to be 
displayed to good advantage. This girlie Is 
a very, Tory clever dancer, and with one 
popular song in her repertoire to replace one 
of those being used, she would bo received 
for "full worth" of the talent she possesses. 
Walker and III continue to present their 
farce wherein a young woman Haunches her- 
self into the apartment of a traveling man, 
by mistake, and Is made to drink and smoke 
by him while attired In a snlt of pajamas 
she supposed were the property of a girl 
chum. The idea and sketch has been "done 
to death." Walker and III manage to get 
some laughs from the "smoke" and "drink" 

The Bell Boy Trio were their usual big suc- 
cess, harmonising "Twentieth Century Rag," 
"Tra La La I. a," "A Real Moving Picture 
from Life," "The Rose of the Mountain Trail" 
and "Fooling Around," wbllo their comedy 
business between each number added to the 
richness of their unexcelled offering of har- 
mony. No need to tell all over again bow 
good these boys are, for they have played 
every place that was ever governed by Uncle 
Sum with equal success for the past "steen" 

The Eugene Trio of experts on tbe triple 
bar rigging are another three who are away 
up In their line of entertainment, and dosing 
the bill here, rounded out a real good Loew 
show with their slants and comedy work of 
the down comedian. 

Charles K. Harris' wonderful veteran, 
"Just Break the News to Mother," was the 
illustrated song offering. Tod.

Uammerstein has Installed a dance pavilion, 
where the tango fanatics can do their fa- 
vorite steps during Intermission and after 
tbe regular ebow at night with no extra 
charge. The pronvnade presents the well 
known pastoral features that have always 
made It popular. 

The bill for the week is one of merit end 
should draw. The program has been di- 
vided, and the first half Introduces the dif- 
ferent Taudeville attractions, while the sec- 
ond half, after Intermission, is given up to 


graceful, and dance well.

If 8am McKee continues to give the kind 
of bills all season that he is showing this 
week, he should have very little trouble In 
playing to rapacity at each performance. 

As a special feature, Clark and Bergman, 
with their sterling musical comedy skit, 
'Tho Trained Nurses," pleased greatly, and 
one woutd think by the hearty applause It 
received that It was tbe first presentation. 
The work of both principalis was very mcri- 
toroius, and the assisting company lent good 

Those exponents of harmony and fun. 
Hedges Brothers sod Jacobson, had tbe 
cream tpot on the bill and certainly cleaned 
up. It is one of the cleverest trios in tbe 
.business, and what these boys don't know 
about putting over a song isn't worth 

Louis Hardt, the gentleman athlete, with 
a most wonderful performance, showing many 
feata entirely new In this house, made one 
ef the hits of the entertaining bill Although 
In a closing position, he hrid them all seated 
until the conclusion of his performance. 

Corelll and Gillette, In their comedy acro- 
batic performance, made them tit up and 
take notice. Both boys are capable artiste 
In their lino, performing all their tricks with 
ease and grace. The comedy Is exceptionally 
good and earned many hearty laughs. 

Fredrika Slemoos and company, offering 
a comedy playlet called "Lis," waa Interest- 
ing throughout, and held marked attention. 
Mfss Sleroona, In the -title role, gave an ex- 
cellent portrayal of her role. Her support- 
log company wss good, and the skit proved 
one of the successes of tbe evening. 

John Canrwell and Rita Walker, giving 
their succctsful sketch, "Under the whlto 
I.ijrrire," had everything their own way, the 
audience taking kindly to them from bho 
start Tho nut material of CantwsJl seemed 
to go big, and tho tlntnng and dandng of 
dainty Miss Walker were Ihe features. 

Tbe .Salon Srnaers* offering, a repertoire 
of ttartdard and operatic sriectlune, took 
about twenty bows and feverci encores for

voices; and harmonlie well. ,

comedy e*lt, "The Circus GJrl." held down an 
early iposatron, and Fjhowed that it makes Ut- 
ile oUffeence now they are placed on a bill, 
their act meeting with tremendous success. 

Ford and Hewitt, nan and woman, in tho 
opening position, presented several 
dances, and went over nicely. .The male 
member is coKtoroed In a beer skin, and If 
his purpose was to try «nd present a novelty 
he mltW the mark entirely. They wootd 
do much better In straight evening clothes.

Madison Square Hoof Gardes.— The 
Madison 8qnsre Roof Garden opened Satur- 
dnv night. May 80, in blase of glory. Palms 
nnd plants and colored electric lights. Ori- 
ental decorations and the topa daadng pa- 
Ylllon converted the roof Into a pretty pic- 
ture. Ten pairs of dancers gave exhibitions 
of the new dances, and the Chinese wishing 
tree proved as popnlar as ever.

This company of well known negro players 
made a sensational hit at another city house 
the early part of the season. ^_„ . , 
AL Leonhardt. billed as the talkative Jug- 

?ler, held down number one position In good 
orm, and went over nicely. The Three Du 
Ball Brothers, singers and dancers, went 
well, the boys are very shy on tbe melody 
stuff, but what they lacked In the vocal end 
of their performance they made up for, by 
their exceptional good hard ehoe, dancing. 

Flora, the educated African monkey, gave 
a most wonderful performance, and was a 
tremendous hit „ - 

Ray-tMonde billed with a question mark, 
managed to get over. Ray-ddonde gives an 
Impersonation of a female giving an imper- 
sonation of a male in evening attire, worst, 
up the finale of tho act with double wbjs. 
Ray-Monde la nothing more than a female 
Impersonator with very little daas. 

John F. Conroy and hit Diving Girls gave 
his usual clever aquatic novelty, which met 
with its usual success.

a double event The Cohan mystery farce 
registered ltt three hundredth consecutive 
New York performance, and the additional 
event furnished In the announcement tbat 
the .personnel of the presenting company 
underwent an entire chance, the New York 
coat, heeded by Wallace Eddinger, retiring 
In favor of Cyril Scott and associate players, 
who have been presenting tliei same play at 
tho Cohan Grand Opera Houses In Chicago, for 
tho past six months. By this arrangement 
Cohan 4 Harris are enabled to carry out 
thdr plan to eontlnne the "Seven Keys to

(BUfXB r. bosses, MOB.) 
The Summer season seems to hava little 
terror on the attendance here. Monday mati- 
nee found almost every seat flllsd and tne 
general verdict given was that aeldom has 
such a wonderful variety of talent been 
shown en one program before. 

Mercedes, assisted by Mile. Btantone, again 
mystified the large audience with their won- 
derful mind reading performance. «"• 
indeed, one of the greatest novelties that 
vaudeville baa had in many moons, and 
should prove a big hor office attraction. 

Fannie Brlce, the clever singer of char- 
acters, presented a new repertoire of Bongs, 
featuring "Mootehing Along." which proved 
a big encore getter. Her other songs were 
well chosen snd rendered as only she can. 

Bert Clark and Mabri Hamilton, in their 
musical comedy skit, entitled "A Wayward 
Conceit," again showed their versatility in 
songs and up-to-date dancing. Their offering 
met with a hearty reception, the audience 
applauding thdr efforts In a liberal manner. 
Stuart Barnes, with his snappy line of 
taUt and comedy songs, had Jittle cause to 
complain at the reception accorded him. His 
new material la good and brought him in 
good returns. 

Bert UeiToao and bis tables amused here, 
at he does anywhere. He had the audience 
gasping for breath with his seeming death- 
defying stunts. - - . 

Qua Edwards and his Matinee Girls wat 
easily one of the bus of tbe bill. Gus Is 
quite a favorite herei and the crowd waa net 
slow In snowing thdr approval of his and 
his companions' talents. 

Chung Hwa Comedy Four, featuring popu- 
lar songs and a little comedy thrown in, 
please. The four harmonize well and know 
now to put over a song properly. ..

During an Interesting Impromptu Inter-flew 
with Harry Rouclere, in which toe conver- 
sation drafted to the systems ot mind read- 
ing now employed by "wonders" of the pres- 
ent day, Harry Rouclere who. with Mrs. 
Rouclere (Mildred) has been at the game 
of thought transmission for twenty years, 
gave some Interesting facts concerning his 
experience In parlor and stage entertain- 
ments. . . 

Clearly with the Rouclores "every little 
movement has a: meaning." It Is unneces- 
sary for them In their own domestic life to 
resort to aup ■ ordinary conversation as 
thought transmission Is second nature to 
them. ' 

' When flurry wonts n certain Sunday din- 
ner ho merely projects the thought, and on 
Sunday the dinner Is there. When be Is to 
play a date he Imparts the Information te 
the Mrs. by the same system, and. In fact, 
their entire routine Is governed by this* 
elaborate system of signals, and signals there 
nre, as Mr. Rouclere Is frank In saving that 
there Is nothing In the theory of thought 
waves. After a year's lay-off. Mildred re- 
turns to the stage and performed tbo act 
without one error. Rouclere Is modest In 
saving that there Is not one system In tnlnil- 
readlng that he Is not an expert In. To 
demonstrate, he requested the writer to 
mark down a figure on a newspaper and, 
standing quite a distance from him, Imme- 
diately told him the right number. Whether 
by the slight sound or by the almost. Im- 
perceptible movement of the pencil remains a 
mystery, but he did It ■ 

He recently Invited a party In the Putnam 
Ilulldlng to. select a card from a new deck 
and then requested that they call up Mrs. 
Rouclere at Oath Beach by phone. She told 
them the cards selected correctly before they 
could ask. her the question. ■ 

Tho "novelty," Mr. Rouclere says, of call- 
ing for songs, for different persons In cos- 
tume, for different authors, composers, celeb- 
rities, the reading of lines from books, etc., 
are merely variations of the systems now 
employed by the modern mystery folks. 
Furthermore. Mr. Rouclere in railing for 
these readings bv Mildred, does not have to 
address her at all. The "wondcMul" part 
of these actB Is the mental training and 
universal knowledge that has to be acquired 
and retained by both, parties to the demon- 

At a - private. party given by Mrs. Run- 
Mint Pish the hostess requested Mr. Rou- 
clere to have Mildred select a certain' book 
from her extensive library, and Mildred, 
who had not set foot in tho building before 
that time, went to the book shelves with 
closed eyes and brought out the proper 

A Morse telegraph operator remembers a 
limited number of slgnnls and their meaning,

versed In almost Innumerable signals and 
their Interpretations. 

There has not been n book on the subject 
of mind reading published within the last 
twelve years In which the wonderful demon- 
strations given liy the Roucleres are not eet 
forth. _____ 


The Folles opened May 20. with a gorgeous 
production, a One cast of. principals and a 
lively chorus.' About forty numbers had to 
be cut out to finish the show the same even- 
ing. Leon Prrol and Rert Williams have 
several funny encounters. Arthur Deegon, 
ML W'ynn. J. Bernard Dyllyn and George 
AtcKny, also Vera MIcheletM, Horno and

The exodus" for the "other side" still con- 
tinues. Nowadays a little Jaunt across the 
pond Is a regular routine In the life of any 
regular performer, and they think no more 
of It than of a trip to Kalrhaven, N. J. 
Among those who shook a "day-day" to the 
II. 8. from the deckB of the Olympic on May 
30 were: Marie Lloyd, who will return next

Lewis F. Mulr, the composer of "Waiting 
for the Robert E. Loo," "Illtchy Koo." "The 
Barber Shop Chord" and many other popu- 
lar melodies, and who recently returned jo» 
I/ondon where he was selected by ., ignor 
Leoncavallo (of "Pugllncci" fame) to col- 
laborate for the Hippodrome Review, was 
married Monday, June 1, at Fair Haven, N.

Count Ernlltn Gundoro De Sorel, and grand- 
daughter of Gustavo David, the noted Euro- 
peon painter of war scenes. She Is a gradu- 
ate of the Conservatory of Music. Paris, and 
a linguist of unusual ability. She met Mr. 
Mulr at a private reception while making a 
tour of the United States. 

After the ceremony the bridal party left 
for Atlantic City, by automobile, where they 
will spend their honeymoon, returning to 
Fair Haven for the Summer, 


The new offices of the Sbapiro-Bernfteln 
& Co., on Forty-seventh Street, Just off of 
Broadway, will no ready for occupany about 
June 15. 

Louis Bernstein has spared little expease 
In fitting up the new place, and when It Is 
complete will have one of the best music 
establishments in the world. Every known 
comfort has been Installed for the use of 
professionals, who will find the same wel- 
come In the new place as was given In the 
old quarters. 


Cbarles K. Harris. America's leading bal- 
lad writer. Is hard at work on his new song, 
entitled "When Did You Write to Mother 
Last?" and expects It to be the biggest seller 
be ever published. Ballad singers are falling 
over themselves putting the new ballad on. 


Jos. W. Stern 4 Co. write me as follows : 
"Kindly make mention of the fart that Abe 
Kasak Is no longer connected with our house 
In any capacity. 


' Harry Collins, New York manager for Joe 
Daly, of Boston, Is doing some wonderfnl 
Work for his firm In this burg. His songs 
were represented In two-thlrdB of the the- 
atres and cabarets last week. 

That's the title of Jack Caddlgaa and 
Jlmmle Brcnnan's new novelty song that O. 
K Story, of Boston. Is cleaning up with. 
Fbnrv's Trio, Smith, Boudreau. and that 
wonderful little tenor, Billy Coty, started 
(be number on Its way last week, and cer- 
tainly made a hit that went over for the 
whole four bags. The song is one of those 
openers that gets you at the start and hold.* 
you till the finish. You have got to hand 
It to this house, from the boss down - they're 

Butting a new one over every full moon, 
rennan's thinking of baying an automo- 
bole. and with his royalty, too; Caddigan 
Just bought a new power boat on "The Rose 
of the Mountain Trail," and calls the boat 
"Rose of the Mountain Trail." 


In last week's issue we announced the re- 
tirement of J. Fred Helf from the music 
game. It now comes to pass that Fred la 
still la the game stronger than ever, and, as 
he puts It, ''next season I will have several 
songs that chould prove tbo biggest successes 
I have ever had." 

Ills offices are still on Forty-fifth Street, 
where he Is always ready to welcome old 
friends and make new ones. 


Tho "Castle" dance numbers, all of which 
are controlled by Jos, W. Stern A Co., cer- 
tainly received a wonderful boost and In- 
valuable publicity during the recent tour of 
Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Castle. "The C'aetlo 
Walk." "Castlo Trot," "Castle Maxlxe," 
"Cnstle Walts," "Castle Classic Walts," 
"Castle Tango" arc . some of the "Stern" 
hits which were ployed by Europe's Society 
Orchestra, which accompanied .the dancers 
on their tour. Musical directors throughout 
the country are unanimous in proclaiming 
these numbers as the best array of Instru- 
mental successes ever put on by any one 


Nat Vincent, one of the hardest pluggers 
In the game, Li looking forward to one of the 
most strenuous seasons he has ever had. 

The burlesque game is Nat's hobby, and 
although there will be some hundred and 
ten shows In tho different wheels, he expects 
to have the Broadway Music Co.'s songs 
with each show. 

Ho Is surely some world touring kid. 
Watch him next season. 



Jack Von TUzer, who Is president of the 
Empire Music Company, has a new song 
that, with the proper handling, should be 
quite a clean up for him. The song is en- 
titled "An Old Fashion Girl," and is going 
big with many headlincrs. 


"Tho Beautiful Sen," Harry Carroll's lat- 
est Summer song, has taken hold like a 
vise. It is being sung In every cabaret 
show and vaudeville bouse In town, and the 
reports have it that It Is tbo same thing In 
each city. 

It looks like another clean-up for Shapiro, 
Bernstein *t Co. 


It Is rumored that Frank Bright, who Is 
in charge of tbe Broadway Music Co.'s Chi- 
cago office, will return to New York shortly, 
and his place taken by Maurice Better who 
recently resigned from the Harry Von TUzer 


Last Saturday and Sunday* tbe boys from 
the New York music publishers reaped quite 
a harvest down at Coney Island. Every 
publisher was represented and the plug was 
not wasted, as the largest crowd Coney has 
ever seen was down. 


Now that It is a certainty that we will 
have no war with Mexico, what is toabecome 
of all the war songs? It might be a good 
idea to .change tbe lyrics and sell them to 
Villa for national hymns. 

The profession art always waiting for 
Bometalng new from ' these Trays, and they 
generally turn out something that Is worth 
while. , 

Last week F. A. Mills announced a new 
one by the boys called "I Had a Gal, I Had 
a Pal," and It looks like another Gilbert 
and Mulr success. 


Melville Maurice, of the J. H. . Rcmlck 
forces, has sojourned for the Summer to his 
home in Borough Park. Maurice can be 
found any Sunday morning looking over bis 
favorite baseball team. He even wagers as 
much as ten cents on the team. Some sport 
this guy. 


The hundreds of friends of jovial Arthur 
Behlm, the road representative of the Broad- 
way Music Company, will be pleased to learn 
that he Is rapidly recovering from his re- 
cent operation, and expects to be about 


Henry Waterson's new music and novelty 
atore, at Broadway and Forty-seventh Street' 
is now open for business, and again shows 
the master hand of this genius. It is one of 
the most thoroughly equipped enterprises of 
Its kind in the world, a place that one will 
find almost anything In too music line. 

Hardly out of the game a week. Joe Good- 
win, one of our best lyric writers, has signed 
a contract to write exclusively for Water- 
son, Berlin & Snyder. 


If the letters, telegrams and special de- 
livery letters continue to come in as fast as 
they have been coming In dnring the past ten 
days for "He Was Always Fooling Around," 
this great "clown" song will positively be 
the biggest sensation in tbe country before 
the Summer is very old. 

Anna Chandler, this week at Hammer- 
stein's, for her last number la using "He 
Was Always Fooling Around," and at nearly 
every performance she has been Interrupted 
by outbursts of applause during her choruses. 
Never in the history of Hammerateln's has 
there been such a big hit. Montgomery and 
Moore arc "Fooling Around" with great suc- 
cess at Keith's Theatre, Philadelphia George 
Ward writes that he has never had a song 
that went for him like "He Was Always 
Fooling Around" is going this week nt Keith's 
Theatre, Cincinnati Kelly and Galvtn, at 
Loew'e Greeley Square, are a positive sensa- 
tion with "He Was Always Fooling Around." 
Burton. Hahn and Cantwell, at Locw's Ful- 
ton Theatre, sing so many verses and 
choruses of "He Was Always Fooling Around" 
that they are virtually exhausted at the 
finish. Seymour, Dempscy and Seymour at 
Fox's Crotona Theatre, make them sit up 
and take notice when they sing "He Was 
Always Fooling Around." 8am Harris, the 
ever smiling "Sam," is certainly making them 
laugh with ull the extra verses and choruses 
of "He Was Always Fooling Around." In 
fact, it is such a hit for him that he himself 
has written Beveral extra verses and choruseo 
to satisfy the tremendous applause. 

"If They'd Only Move Old Ireland Over 
Here is growing bigger and bigger every 
day. There never was an Irish song like 
It It is in a class by itself. It can be 
sung cither ns a ballad or comedy song. The 
audience cannot help but like this number, 
because it has a great lyric and they feel 
like joining In the chorus every time they 
hear it. because of its very catchy melody. 

"If I Had My Way" continues to grow big- 
ger dally in favor with the ballad singers. 
It Is as pretty a ballad as has ever been 

"If I Were the Ocean and You Were tho 
Shore" Is another very prettv ballad which 
has been taken up everywhere It has ever 
been sung. 

Those who have heard "He Was Always 
Fooling Around" say that It la the cleverest 
thing Billy Jerome has ever done and when 
one stops to consider that Billy Jerom» has 
written Buch numbers as "Row, Row, Row," 
■Bedells," "Mr. Doolcy," "My Irish Molly 
Oh," "Green Grass Grew All Around," "Sit 
Down. You're Rocking the Boat," etc., "He 
Was Always Fooling Around" must be a 
wonderful number. 

Mullen and Coogan sent us a night letter 
faying the song was a eensation at Keith's. 
Washington; also President Wilson, who wan 
in the box with a party of friends, laughed 
heartily and applauded after every verse and 
chorus very vigorously. Dot Diamond Is n 
tremendous lilt with "He Was Alwavs Fool- 
ing Around," and sings It very effectively in 
her own novel way, and It may be guessed 
that it is "different' from the way an j body 
clBe does this song. Neal McKtnley, at the 
.National Theatre, Detroit, is "clowning" Ms 
way to success with "He Woo Alwnvs Fool- 
ing Around," and Neal writes that it Is 
positively the biggest and most natural song 
hit he has ever used.

(Special to The Curpxa.) 

St. John N. B.. Can., May 30. 

Fire started in the tulldlng»k5o— n as the York 
Theatre here about- 10.30 last night, and within 
an hour the entire building was destroyed. Orlg- 
inally erected of wood In 1841, It was known as 
the Mechanics' Institute. Walle not erected orig- 
inally for an opera bouse, tbe asdltorlum was 
used for lectures and concerts. After the big 
St. John Are, In 1877, when the Academy of Mu- 
sic and Lanergarys Lyceum were destroyed. It 
became the only place of amusement here until 
tbe present Oucra House was erected. In 1891. 
Fran that date until 1004 It plared occasional 
attractions. In 1005 R. J. Armstrong bought it, 
ond after making some alterations, opened It as a 
vaudeville house, under the name of th« York 
Theatre. In 1007 tbe Keltti interests leased it 
and opened It as a mm lng picture, house, when It 
was known as the Nickel. 

fcJnce tho opening of the Imperial last-Sepren. 
tor tbe house kail been lemcl only for loeal ama- 
teur shows, le>!tnw*, meeilnri. etc. The last per- 
formance was glvtu May £.V27. by tocnl aautou—t , 
who presented "La Mascotte." 

At present writing it Is impossible to learn the 
eonae of the Ore. The bslblui-j was owned by F". 
E-. Wllllims. of this city and is said to be.lnBured 
for 110.000. Tut Keith Interests had It unter 
letse nuUl Way 1, 1011. Mtny of the leading 
lecturers, singers and theatrical stars of the past 
►lity years bail appeared en Its stage.- The seat- 
ing capacity was about l.OCO. It is not likely 
that It will be rebuilt, as the location Is not an 
ideal one. 



Frank Damont revived minstrelsy as it was 
.created by a quartette to 1843, as a ftttlng feature 
of the eloslng week of the season. The flfst oart 
of half circle was originated In that year" by 
Frank Brower, a Pnlladelnbtan, who was as- 
sisted by Dick Pelbao, Billy Whltlock and old 
Dan Emmett. It was Brat presented at the 
Chatham Theatre. New York. Jan. 31, 1843, and 
the acene represented a Southern plantation, amid 
cotton fields, with the planter's mansion, and the 
colored servants having a Jubilee, attired In tn* 
dress of that era, with banjos, Iddlea. guitars, 
'Old Jawbones" and other primitive Instruments. 
Tbe original "Jawbone" used Is In Mr. Dnmont's 
collection. Tbe old songs, like "Old Black Joe'.' 
and many others which were familiar to our 
grandfathers, will be rendered on this occasion, 
and will no doubt revive pleasant memories. It 
will be something of a novelty to see minstrelsy 
In exact replica of Its original presentation. 
Incidentally, the current season haa been the most 
prosperous for Dumont's Minstrels In a number of 
years, watch would Indicate that this style ot 
amusement haa by no means died out.

Notes from Murphy's Comedians No. 3: We 
were making a rather long Jump from Cape 
Girardeau, Mo., to Johnston City, 111., making 
a change at Chaffee, Mo., recently. Clio* Swan 
and Paul Maxwell had to make a visit as they 
m?nerally do. If only to Increase their extensive 
acquaintance. Upon this occasion it was AL P. 
Globs Ladles' Baseball Club who were In their 
private car at Chaffee. Mr. Otbbs, a most 
pleasant conversationalist, was of course glad 
lo see the boys. Messrs. Swan and Maxwell pro- 
longed their conversation to a satisfactory. period, 
giving plenty of time for their train to get away 
"right under their noses." Of course "plenty of 
lime," but when tbe box-car twins arrived at tho 
station and saw no signs of their suit cases or 
any members of' the company, one csn picture 
lite blank expressions on their faces Tbe train 
left at 2.2S v. X., and tbe next one was 2.25 
i*. x. on tbe following day. Fortunately the twins 
learned of a freight-train that was leaving sbont 
4.30 P. M.. sad arrived about midnight Tbey 
could not get satisfactory permission from the 
conductor to ride tbe train so it was a case of 
"hoeing It" In one of tbe box-cars. And It was 
some' hot. 

When the freight stopped at Tbelies you crald 
hear the familiar found of tbe csl.lopc from the 
showboat "Woudtxland." A symphony orchestra 
could not have sounded tweeter, oml here ths 
"Box-Car Johnnies" scrambled over seat-boards 
and trunks to i-wp boles, Lnt alas the were too 
miieU to see tbe boat. Worse thtn being priv- 
eiied. The boys enly had nbont eighty-three miles 
to enjoy the hit olraospbTe and presture of the 
>.euled hex-ear, As lock linppene! tbe freight 
nmred tn Johnston City atout three hours late.

The deal reported to have gone through for 
a burlestjito wheel In England, as projected by 
J. , Uurtlf, ' of Uurtlg ft Seam'on, la a doubtful 
tiroposltioa, according to the opinion of a welt 
known amusement expert now visiting New Tork, 
after an extended experience, tilth' tbo theatres 
sad shows in England, and also la American bur- 

Several arguments cuter Into hi* views as to 
tbe total Inadvlsablllty of tho scheme. 

In tho first place, tie says, "the total absence 
of tho middle class, or those in rather comfort- 
able circumstances, who, as In America, can af- 
ford io pay a fair price for a theatre: seat, makes 
It Impossible for any manager to figure on returns 
at sll In keeping with the expense of an averngo 
burlesque show, that would play Ihe provinces," 

Ot all the shows organised in London to tour 
tbe provinces hardly one has a salary list of over 
1500. Tbe houses which could lie secured (and 
the expert denies that thirty could lie found), 
play to prices that average a thousand itollnrs on' 
I he week, a shilling being the top price In most 
of them, with a few box seats at two shillings 
alx pence, or sixty cents. 

American chorus girls could not be secured for 
less than 120 each, and any good comedian would 
want tl'iS or |ino. Then the prhn.i dnnns, tho 

saubrctte and others, where would tbo manager 
ot a show get off? 

The manager of a ahaw In the provinces con* ' 
slilers himself fortunate If he clear* a hundred 
dollars on a show that costs hint $D0O R week, 
and where Is the Interest on the coat of equipment 
If the show eats up that profit and more. 

Many years ago the Held was thoroughly gone 
over liy Lawn-nco Wels-r. and It didn't figure at 
sll. The English uinuagcis have been, observing 
tho American lurlexiue >how system for a num- 
ber of years, nud never could nguro-how tiny 
could povslbty cume out alive on any proposition 
that Involved any- where i.enr the expense' nf a 
modern. American burlesque show In the opinion 
of this expert there arc not ten houses outside 
of l^imkn that would lend themselves lo the 
scheme and Londoners would not patronise or en- 
Mingo anything so entirely American as a bur- 
lesque thow as we know It They would net 
l -atio-nlsc the*} Yankee notions a* lias becu the 
Hitd expedience of other American managers who 
lost their good money In trying to show them. 
They simply could not see It. Anil a burlesque 
wheel In any .other country than America' might as 
well never nt i n. as it vroul I take too uiu:k axle 
gieno. The bouse and tho company would get nil 
the money In Sight. A. B. ('.

Everything*!* In its normal condition. We are 
doing a very nice business, so we have forgotten 
Ibe moat unpleasant experience. 

This la the sixth week of the ahow, and during 
that time very few changes bare been made In 
the personnel of the company. Several of the 
aunt, however, have been discharged and more 
capable men bare taken their place, until now the 
esnagerlal and working forces are running 
smoothly. . 

The towns we have vlalted are loud in their 
praises of oar splendid equipment, nod me char- 
acter of the Shows that we are offering. Mr. 
Worth am realises that this la a day and age of 
progress, and in order to be saccessful It is ab- 
solutely necaaary that a showman nowadays elim- 
inate all Ibe objectionable and disgusting fea- 
tures possible and present to the show going pub- 
He clean, high class, meritorious performances. 
and his experiment has proved more than eoc- 

The Hippodrome presents Ilollaad'a fan- 
ly of circus performers, eight in number, who 
are more than making good. A recent addition 
to the Hippodrome abow la Cipt Gerald Irwin, 
who has charge of (he wild aniuiol portion of tbo 
show, and notwithstanding that Cant. Irwin was 
attacked by two of the lions In his big mixed 
group a few weeks back, he is now presenting his 
performance at every show that la given In the 

jUretta Derby, of the Aerial Derbys, presents 
her performance In a highly professional manner, 
and greeted with a round and rouul of applause 
at her every appearance. 

H W. Williams haa made several changes la 
Ui "Mamie" show, and baa added several new 
electrical festiires. Which make it one of the 
foremost •hows of Its kind In America. 

The water show haa been greatly augmented 
and strengthened by the addition of live diving 
atria and a uniform band of eight pieces. The 
Crystal Tangle, and Crystal Tangle's wagons were 
struck by a yard engine In the yards at Pekln, 
111., and the accident caused a destruction of 
over 1800 worth of mirrors, bat Manager 
Woetbam was equal to the occasion, and sent Cor- 
bellle to Chicago and purchased a duplicate num- 
ber of mirrors, and the ahow went on as before, 
losing two nights, which, we believe, Is the record 
tar the readjustment of a practically destroyed 

on la located near our airing of cars, snd It seems 
that the waokj ahow la Interested In the forth- 
coming gome. The lineup snd particulars Will 
be given In next week's Issue of the papers.

A roost unusual sight waa seen Monday night, 
showing the progress that tbe automobile In- 
dustry has made In a few years. There was at 
least three hundred autoa on the streets Monday, 
and the writer was told that they were owned 
by tbe farmers In this moat prosperous community, 
and that Is one thing that accounts for the fall- 
ing off. of tbe afternoon business of shows and 
carnivals. The fanner who owns sn automobile 
can eat supper at borne, drive In and aee the 
shows at night, but It la an lllwlnd that blows 
nobody good. If we get tbem at night, aa many 
as we would get la the afternoon and night, "we 
should worry."

Plain Dave Morris la still with us. and his 
promotions In the city of Davenport, la., netted 
aim quite a neat sum. David says that Mr. 
Wortham la to be complimented upon the tact 
that be had tbe pleasure of engaging him. 

• Mr, Wortham recently purchased a Howard 
automobile, but found that the aatne was too 
small for his needs and traded the Howard for 
a big Overland touring ear, which he uses to 
head the parade, which, by the wary, Is a new 
■aeration In tbe carnival field. 

J. C. McCaffery, enperlnteudeat of concessions, 
ssade a Dying trip to Chicago last week and pur- 
chased a new style cooking and lighting apparatus 
far the dining car. Be also purchased for D. M. 
Atwond a portable ores, wblch arrived on Satur- 
day in Slour City, and waa immediately tried out, 
and the most delicious biscuits, pies, cakes, 
routs, etc., were cooked in the oven, and the 
connoisseurs pronounced them most excellent. 

Our camels at times go on a rampage and mis- 
behave in a" manner that we cannot understand. 
Upon their arrival In Danville they broke one 
huge plate glass window, snd in Des Moines they 
bit the keeper upon the arms and hack and sent 
hia to the hospital for a week, and two daya 
after his return from the hospital wu again at- 
tacked by tbe larger one of the camels, and waa 
bruised and hurt Internally. Notwithstanding that 
fact, they are a source of very much revenue to 
the show. Two Immense saddles were built and 
r-isced upon tbe backs of the camels, and a charge 
of twenty-five cents la made lo convey the patrons 
from one end of the Midway to the other. 

Several new baggage wagons have been built 
and purchased, as tie show Is growing out of the 
present equipment. A new electric lighting device 
Is being Inttslled in all the sleepers, and la prov- 
ing more than successful, dne to the ingenuity of 
■bat Inventive genius, Chsrles B. Kidder. 

Manager Btonghton was In Sioux Falls one day 
last week and Brought back the report that from 
the preparaiiona that are being made and the 
Interest that <a being taken la the affair, tbe 
South Dakota Silver Jubilee and Home Coming, 
to take place June 15 to SO, will be one big 
hammer. Tbe Commercial Club and Board of 
Trade are sparing neither pains nor expense to 
make it the biggest thing that was ever pulled 
off In South Dakota, and after looking over sev- 
eral companies they selected the Wortham Shows 
to pl«y this big event. 

One of the events of this week will be a base- 
ball game between two picked nines of the mem- 
bers of the Wortham Shows. The baseball park 
In Yankton haa been secured and the game Is 
scheduled to start at twelve noon, Thursday. 
Manager Wortham, In anticipation of tbe pleasure 
that the people with the show will derive from 
Ibe ball game, has issued an order to suspend all 
operations of the Wortham Shows ostll the game 
Is over. Inaamach as tbe rivalry Is so keen the 
hour of twelve noon has been selected as the 
gsne bids fair to go many Innings. 

Plata Dave Morris, tnanacer of one of the 
teams called the Never Swears, and J. O. Mc- 
Caffrey of the Separators, arc keeping the bat- 
teries secret. Much rivalry la going on betsveen 
the two teams. Thousands of dollars bare been 
bet In tbe final outcome, snd a real baseball game 
I» expected. 

Among the rlsyers thst will tske pert In the 
rbsmpkmshlp aeries will be Chief Two 8tlcks Kll- 
Patrick, CUef of tbe Red Moon Indians, whose 
reservation la located near Danville, 111., the 
home by the way. of 0. A. Wortham and the 
Wortham Shows. The gloves, bats, masks snd 
everything pertaining to tbe success of tbe gams 
are to the safety deposit vault in Yankton, guard- 
ed by several trusty members of tbe eompsny 
lo remove all chances of spiked gloves, sll dxed 
halls, or of loose masks.

Lincolx. Neb. 

Nebraska's beauty spot has taken very kindly 
to the Allman Bros.' Big American Shows, and 
this, In connection with tbe tact that we are now 
in our third week on the "right" aide of tbe 
Missouri Blver. la tending to put tbe management 
and tbe various attaches in an amiable frame of 
mind end helping to smooth out the wrinkles which 
collected in their bankrolls during our short slsy 
in tbe Iowa city opposite Omaha. 

Platlsraooth, Neb., proved to ha one of the beat 
Spring dates ever played br the Allranrm Btus.' 
Big American Shows. The people fumed out 
en mauf, and patrootcd freely the various showa 
and eonossions. This, too. despite the fsct tbst 
tbe' weather daring ths week waa such that an 
overcoat was n ixtltlve rterefSlly daring most cf 
the time. 

During the Plattsmourh engagement tbe writer 
bad the pleasure of meeting Colonel M. A. Bates, 
who waa at one time In the circus business, but 
who is now the owner and editor of The Plattt- 
mouth Eccnlnj Journal.. Since lesvlng the whits 
tops the Colonel bss served several terms In the 
Nebraska Legislature. That he treated the mac- 
arernent of the Allman Bros.' Shows royally 
would be patting It mildly. A kindly snd gen- 
erous gentleman la the Colonel, and to bis liber- 
ality in giving freely of the space In his very 
bright and newsy Journal can be attributed much 
of tbe phenomenal success of this engagement. 
Tub New Yob>c Olii'pks can always be found oo 
his desk, and although, be has been out of the 
show business for a number of years, he still 
finds much to Interest him In Its columns. Ws 
shall always bold Colonel Bates In pleasant and 
grateful memory, * 

In South Omoba, unfler the auspices of the 
Bedraee, we duplicated the success which we hsd 
at Phttsmoatb, and here, too. we received the 
most kindly consideration from tbe press. The 
OmoAo Btt was especially laudatory m their 
comments on tbe merits of the sbosrs, and tie 
general sppesrance of the outfit.

The Pepper Twins send Ibis clipping to 
Taa Cmppcb, from tbe columns of The 
Toronto reiearwss. May SO: 

"He's only an erlorl" 

Hare ?ou ever heard anyone say that in 
the same disparaging tone that somo people 
vttd to say "She s only a woman I" 

But a cynical world Is learning. And from 
tbe heart of the tragedy that has fixed tbe 
shuddering Kaie of a wbote world on our 
River 8t Lawrence, conies a splendid tale 
of bow an actor waa also a man. And for 
those In Toronto wbo last March recognised 
in Laurence Irving an artist and a gen las. 
there la now left a beautiful memory of 
Laurence Irving, the man. 

In this morning's dispatches from Quebec 
wss this : 

"Laurence Irving, the noted actor, son of 
I tbe rate Sir Henry Irving, died trying to save 
bis wife." 

Where is tbe weak, artistic temperament 
we hear «o much ahotit? 

According to If. B. Abbott, of Toronto, wbo 
waa tbe last person te> see Irving alive, tbe 
actor was quite calm and was endeavoring 
to hurry his wife aloft when tbe boat lurched 
and he was thrown acnlnst the cabin door. 
Then as ahe saw hla bloody face she threw 
her arms around bam and would not let hln 
put the life belt on her. But he persisted, 
nnd frantically carried ber upstairs, despite) 
her struggles. And the last thing the sur- 
vivor saw before he dived from the sinking 
vessel was Irving kissing hi* wife, as clasped 
la one another*! arms they wane down, with 
the sblp. 

It was such an end aa those who know 
and loved that devoted coople would have 
pictured would he their*. It has been said 
that to truly enact a rote one must have 
within them qualities that "under certain cir- 
cumstances would develop a certain charac- 
ter. During his Ill-fated Canadian tour, 
which had fust ended. Lawrence Irving al- 
most nightly enacted heroic figures in n Ty- 
phoon" and "The Unwritten Law." But 
greatest of all wns Lawrence Irving In his 
fast role In the Drama of Lite, when he 
played'hts last big role of Hero. 

As for Mabel Hackney, her loving euro for 
Laurence Irving proved tbelr doom. As one 
who saw them dally during their engage- 
ment in Toronto, we kna>w In some slight 
measure her devotion to him. She was wife, 
leading lady, stairs manager, electrician 
(only ons man and herself understood the 
intricate arnxtfemnt of tbe lights In "Ty- ^lll ola 
frhoon." If he had been :il she would hare 5 irtton 
fad to managed It somehow.) Never have 
we seen a more devoted stage couple and 
trith such reason. His was a remarkably 
brilliant mind, and she had brains enough to 
tnderstand last what a geulns be was. 

It was his T>asi>lon for llfo that makes the 
passing of Laurence Irving seem such an 
overwhelming tragedy to us. Ho was so 
keenly Interested in man and work. Kvery 
moment In his Canadian tour be could get 
he was busy writing; bis new play, which 
dealt with a Russian revolutionary, "Ho 
even steals time from his sleep," autd> his 

Tbey •casaod ideally happy. She eared 
for Um and. smoothed, his path, while he 
depended on her as a child la many ways. 
They had no children of tbelr owa, but ne 
has left a ltvgtbr list of the children of his 
brain. "Peter tho Great," "The Unwritteu 
Law," "Time, Hunger and the Law," "Gode- 
frot and yolande/' "A Christmas Story." 
"Bonnie Dundee," "Blcbard Lovelace," "The 
Phoenix.'' ana the English adaptations of 
"Dantar aad "Booeeplerrc " used try his 
fattier, was the work he bad already aecom- 
pllsheO. Hla was also the honor of Intro- 
ducing Brieas to tbe Mngllsh-spoaklDg stage. 

It Is a lengthy list for so young a man. 

rrlog and Mabel Hackney we 
know why tbelr -death seemed "tho aoAy 
war" for both. And it Is such deaths that 
make audi great sea tragedies bearable.

Celebrated Star to Appear In III* 

Greatest Stone Sncceu. "The 

County Chairman," 

The Famous Players film Co. ha* en- 
Raged Maclyn Arbueklc, one of the foremost 
slara of the American stage, to render his 
world famous characterization In The 
County Chairman" before the camera. This 
celebrated play, by George Ado, has otta'ned 
an International refutation, and will be re- 
corded In tho annuls of the singe as one of 
the moHt distinguished dramatic successes of 
lonteniporary theatrical art. 

Maclyn Arbueklc made hts first appearance 
In "The County Chairman" In November, 
1003, from which date he continued to play 
the character of Jliu Ilaclclcr without Inter- 
ruption until ]!M)7, thUR effecting one of the 
longest runu ever uttnined by an American 
play. . 

The story Is thoroughly typical of Amer- 
ica, and George Adc has succeeded In' Inject- 
ing Into the play a fund of humor univer- 
sally famed. The quaint characterizations, 
the faithful depletion of the stress and mock- 
RcrrousncMS of country politics, and the 
strong drama that underlies the plot, make 
the subject cue of the greatest ever yet se- 
cured for the screen, and with the added ad- 
vantage of the original star plnyiig the 
character made familiar by more than a 
thousand performances on the stage, the film 
version of "The Comity Chairman" should 
bear a tremendous Interest for all followers 
of the photoplay. 


The Famous Players Film Co. will shortly 

Iiresent • combination of photoplay and star 
hat assure success as well as euphony — 
Miss Jane Grey, In "The Little Gray Lady," 
Charming Pollock's famous romance, laid in. 
the Ilcdemptlon Office of the U. 8. Treasury, 
at Washington. 

Ulas Grey was selected for the title role of 
the piny, not alone because of her appropriate 
name, but more particularly for her clever 
work In the recent dramatic success, "The 
Conspiracy," and the lllm version of "The 
Little Gray tody" promisee to add another 
triumph to her list. 

Anna Gray, "The Little Gray I.niy," and 
Perry Carlyle are sweethearts, both working 
In a department of the United States 
'i'rensury ut \Vushlngton. Tempted by pretty, 
frivolous Hutu Jordan, daughter of his land- 
lady, Perry for a time forgets the quiet and 
modest little Anna, who grieves In sllcnco 
over his neglect of her. Finding himself 
short of funds for the entertainment of tho 

plea sure-loving llutli. Perry succumb* to the 
lure of the big bills he dally haudlcs, and 
steals from the government. When the 

foolish boy Is Inevitably caught In the pitfall 
of his own unking. It Is not the woman for 
whom he 1ms sinned who aids him, but little 
Anna Gray, who nobly forgets her own suf- 
fering ana cleverly and courageously saves 
the man she loves, oven trying to put tho 
crime on her own slender shoulders. Sue 
Is kept from making this last sacrifice. In 
spifc of herself, but succeeds in saving Perry 
from the consequences of his rush folly. 
And In so doing she saves his soul, ns well, 
for Perry nt last sees the true worth of 
'"Hie Little Gray Lady," and makes a man 
of himself for her sake. 

Besides "The Conspiracy," Jane Gray 
achieved another notable auil recent success. 
In "Nearly 'Married," In which she ■ played 
the lending feminine role opposite llrnco 


The appended communication was received 
at this office from M. A. Nell. President of

Bernard . Daly, the wcll-kr.own actor of 
romanti't roles, who has starred- successfully 
for several; sea soils. In "Irish 'plays, and re- 
cently tontra/qteato appear Ir. Madame AI!-m 
Illnchc's motion picture, production of the 
sensational George Scii-irough drama, "The 
Lure," was made to appreciate the joys of 
his new calling la a manner that will not 
soon be forgotten. ... 

Several weeks of work In ihe Blachc stu- 
dios during too ranking of interesting "In- 
terior" scenes, led Mr. Daly to believe that 
the life of a motion picture actor was one 
long, sweet son.'. One day ot work In the 
open, which intruded a rough trip lying on 
his face on a flat car, a leap to the back plat- 
form ot a swiftly moving passenger train, a 
ride on the cow-catcher of an engine, along, 
hard ride up a steep hill on a bicycle, and a 
trip hand over hand on a cable, made him 
decide that one-tight stands were a bed uf 
roses compared with som* things, and that 
being the liero of a motion picture drama 
wasn't all that it's cracked up to be. 


Two years without talking business or 
signing a new contract got on the nerve* of 
James O'Neill, of the Solax Company, re- 
cently, and he began to long for the good 
old days when an actor bad a chance to 
And some excitement by being at liberty two 
or three times a year, finally unable to 
sleep and cat regularly because of hack of 
worry, he squared bis shoulders and In a loud 
voice announced tbnt he was about to "make 
a change." Immediately the world looked 
brighter, and In spite of the fact that he felt 
a little uneasy -when he discussed his new 
plans with his associates of the Solax, with 
whom he had worked for so long, he enjoyed 
the old thrill of "a season ended and a sea- 
son about to begin." 

Several nattering offers from different man- 
agers were carefully considered, hut as the 
time arrived for him to say good-by to his 
old surroundings, his enthusiasm suffered a 
sorlouB relapse: 

One morning recently he arrived at the 
Studio with Ids face aglow, and volunteered 
the information that the ail-Important ques- 
tion was decided. "What company do you 
go -with?" asked Vlnnle Burns, In a weak 
voice. "Solax," answered . Jim, "and I'm 
going to sign np for ten years." "Hope you 
nave a good season," said Claire Whitney, 
who has contended all the time that James 
O'Neill and Solax were synonymous. 

Edmund Breese, the eminent dramatic star, 
who made bis first screen appearance In the 
Jesse L. Laskv Feature Play Company's pro- 
duction of "The Master Mind," attended the 
Initial performance of that picture at the 
Strand Theatre 

Just before- the picture was thrown npon 
the screen the operator threw a spotlight on 
Mr. Ilreese, who was Bitting in a box with 
Mr. Lasky and Mr. Belaaco. 

Tho great theatre, pecked to tho limit,' 
and the ajdlcnce, amid uproars of ap- 
plause, demanded a speech. Mr. Breese com- 
piled and delivered a short address on the 
pleasure It gave nun to appear In motion 

"I compliment the proprietors of the 
Strand Theatre upon the magnificence of 
tbclr enterprise, and the motion picture in-' 
dustry In general upon the remarkable 
progress made In the past decade." 

At the finish of the speech Mr. Breese 
received another ovation, and his appear- 
ance In person created the proper atmos- 
phere, and "The Master Mind" went over, 
to use the vernacular, like a house on fire

one of the features of the World Film Cor- 
poration, has In connection with Its produc- 
tion an Interesting piece of news. During 
one of the scenes it was necessary to gather 
a number of negroes with their wives and 
families to give the picture the appearance 
of a real eluvo sale. In their eagerness to 
profit by a few nickels, the number of appli- 
cants became so numerous and unruly that 
it was with difficulty the operator saved bis 
camera, let alone his bead. A number of 
constables, however, were able to calm the 
troubled waters. Those seen in the Dim, 
although apparently calm and happy, are iu

Mr. M. P. Exhibitor, 
Atner ioa ana" Elsewhere . 

Bear Friend: 

I sincerely hope to have 
the pleasure of greeting you at our 
exhibit during the week of The Sec- 
ond International Exposition of the 
Motion Pioture Art, to be held at 
Grand Central Palaoe, Sew York City, 
June eighth to thirteenth inclusive. 

Very trul 


did they attack the gates, led by Mr. Terriss, 
but in spite of the fact that they were well 
armed with cudgels, rocks and blunderbusses, 
they failed to put enough spirit Into their 
work to salt their directors. Finally the 
camera started to grind, and Tom Tcrriss 
was seized with a brilliant Idea at the same 
minute. "Three cheers for John D. Rocke- 
feller !" shouted Terriss, in a loud voice and 
with a snarl of hatred that sounded like a 
pack of hungry wolves they rushed forward. 
Rocks that had been carelessly tossed but a 
minute before were thrown with a will, 
while cudgels and wads from guns did tes- 
rlblc execution. The large gates were bat- 
tered down in record tunc, and not until 
doors and 'windows had been smashed and 
the house entered did the I. W. Ws. realize 
that they were merely acting. 

Herbert Blacho was particularly delighted 
with the scene, the value ot which he was 
quick to appreciate from a picture stand- 

Lie rushed forward to praise two of tho 
worthy warriors who had shown great dra- 
matic promise by falling prone upon the 
f [round and remaining perfectly still. A very 
irief investigation snowed that one .ot them 
had stopped a rock with the bump of socio- 
logical knowledge that decorated the top of 
his head, while the other had tried to allow 
a wad of paper to pass through his classic 
features with a good start just behind his 
left car. These casuollties were most un- 
fortunate, but Tom Terriss must at. least 
receive a few words of congratulation for 
his success In getting such fine work out of 
hts followers. lie was seen to be moving 
rapidly from one man - to another and 
anxiously asking some question tbat was 
evidently of great import I "Did you lose 
something, Mr. Terriss?" politely ventured 
the camera man. "No 1 but If 1 find the man 
who planted .that brick in the middle of my 
neck" — began the great English actor, ana 
the remainder of his answer was fortunately 
wafted far away on the gentle breeze. 



Bess Meredyth, leading woman of the Uni- 
versal Joker Company, la soon to appear In 
a series of women detective stories, which 
are a combination of exhlllrating comedy and 
gripping drama. 

'Miss Meredyth Is almost as well known 
for her diversity of talents as for her ability 
m a -portraycr- of comedy roles. She not 
only is a clever actress, -but is a prolific 
writer of scenarios. , ." 

The series will consist of four pictures. 
They will deal with a voung actress who 
finds herself without funds In a strange city 
when the theatrical troupe with whom she 
has been playing "goes broke."- Unable to 
secure other employment, the gtrl disguises 
herself as a messenger boy ond secures a Job. 
Fate throws before her the opportunity to 
become a real detective. 


Fred Beck, a camera man well and fa- 
vorably known to the trade, and presently 
connected with the Twentieth Centurv Fea- 
ture Film Co., a recently organised concern, 
was the lucky bidder who secured the sou-

As has been the custom for years past, 
the much coveted amusement journal of the

off at. the New lork performance given lu the 
Metropolitan Opera House. ... - ,

Within the next week the Western Eclair 
Co., at, their spacious new studio, will start 
work on a three reel production, entitled

somewhat of a novelty, for the reason that

the word. 'The Strike at Coaldale embraces 
many sensational and thrilling situations, 
one of which Is a race between a train of 
cars and a speeding motoreycle, and in order 
to insure the real thing the Eclair Western 
director has made arrangements with the El 
Paso and South Western Ry. for a special

tra people are necessary to form a mob which 
grcots the train and the motorcycle at the 
end of their exciting race, and the town of

George E. Rolands, director for the Ro- 
lands Feature Film Co., and producer of that 
company's first release, "Trapped In the 
Great Metropolis," left New York on May 
25 on a business trip which Is expected to 
cover several weeks, during which he will 
visit Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and other States 
In the Interest of this production. In addi- 
tion to seeing the biggest State right buyers 
and renting. firms, he will probably arrange 
for the opening of several branch offices In 
the Middle West. 

-Mr. Rolands wan one of the first men in 
the film business to realize the possibilities 
of feature photoplays. Formerly a play- 
wright and actor In the theatrical world, 
for the past five years he has been a motion 
picture director apd scenario writer. In 
addition to "Trapped In the Great Me- 
tropolis"- he has written and' produced more 
than "one hundred motion pictures, among 
them such well known features as "The Lure

Grace Darmond, a recent acqusltion to the 
Sell; Stock Company, in -Chicago, who bas 
made good In a variety of parts, In modest 
and meritorious fashion. Is still In her teens, 
although- she hag had ten years of actual 
stage experience. She made her debut In 
the title role of "Editba's Burglar," under 
the direction of William Jackson. She 
traveled in this popular piece (which, by the 
way, was the first successful play of Au- 

Sistus Thomas, now one of America's lead- 
it playwrights), for two seasons. She 
next Joined the stock company at the English 
Opera House* in Indianapolis, where she 
played two seasons in every variety of part 
— from child to old woman. In recounting 
this experience Miss Darmond remarked : 
"I consider my training in stock work as 
absolutely- Invaluable. It was constant 
change and a big spur to originality, and 
good, hard work, I can assure you. It 
would be hard to name any school more 
difficult and exacting tban that of. the stock 
company where you change a bill every week, 
and are rehearsing and memorizing a new 

Slay while you- are still almost getting your 
arlngs in the medium in which you arc 
working It calls for continual study, much 
alertness and eternal vigilance. I have 
heard many actresses complain of the strain 
involved In the memorizing of roles under 
such conditions, but confess this was always 
stimulating to me. In an after experience I 
played the same roles In short pieces for 
protracted runs, and found them most weari- 
some on account of their monotony." 

'Miss Darmond played a whole season In a 
sketch by George Cohan, and was for two 
years associated with J. F. Bannister's com- 

Sany in ' "Old Lang Syne." She is simply 
ellghted with her picture experience at the 
fcellg plant. Up to date she bas appeared in 
about a dozen plays prominently, and con- 
fesses that in all points they appeal to her 
more tban the. theatrical stage. 



■Chicago's chief -social sensation during 
the past week was the tour of Helen Morton 
to the Virginia Mountains to buy a farm 
and stock it with race hbrscs. She attributed 
her flight to the '.fact that she was bored to 
death by "society", and its "nit wits." This 
original coinage, has already attracted inter- 
national attraction and has called out a 
series of interviews with all the great dailies 
so that this fair, young, Admirable Crichton 
llnds her- time rather over' fully employed 
granting interviews to newspaper men and 
freely cnscneslng the deadly dullards whose 
dollars appear to weigh upon their wits, so 
that she ■ scornfully excoriates 'fashionable 
society In -general as "nit wits." Miss Mor- 
ton might make some apropos observations 
on moving picture comedies of the archaic 
slapstick type, that seems to get its risible 
inspiration from fnnny falls, Mows on the 
head with an axe, or similar diversions of 
the Mutt and Jeff order. The censor board, 
who are -serious perssns. appear to have a 
difficult time deciding where fun begins and 
punishments lets off, but fun in a picture 
play cannot be considered either dangerous 
or deleterious to morals. 


A well known law firm In New York City 
recently made application to tie Sellg Poly- 
scope Company for different data concerning 
Importation and exportation oif film. In the 
letter of thanks that came in return, the 
writer remarked: "It Is remarkable that so 
few facts are eutaoratlvely known with re- 
Rpeet to *ls great industry. Would it not 
be wise to procure co-operation from the 
manufacturers for the establishment of a 
Bureau of Information, which could procure 
thorough -statistics, and alive all, correct 
erroneous statements with respect to the In- 
dustry which appear from time to time." 

This seems' to be rather the viewpoint 
taken of a man In' haste, who has not con- 
sidered all' the sources of information thor- 
oughly, although the company declare they 
have made a thorough search for data at 
the National Capitol concerning imports and 
exports without getting the exact informa- 
tion they desired. 

The -various publications devoted to the 
Industry certainly exert a great deal of care 
In trying to procure and publish the neces- 
sary facia relating to moving pictures in 
all detail.- With such valuable factors in 

X ration one hardly sees the necessity for 
. organization of a bureau as the writei 
of the letter suggests as a further aid for the 
Industries. The success of moving pictures 
Has In no small measure been due to the fact 
that the licensed companies In their original 
plans studied ■ the business as well as ' the 
artistic details of the new art. 

The Sellg Polyscope <^rapany last week 
received some very remarkable educational 
films from R. P. Barton, one of their travel- 
ing representatives In Klangnn, Mountain 
Province, P. I. These subjects arc absolute- 
ly unique anff original, and will undoubted- 
ly create -a sensation with ethnologists, as 
well as the general public. The strange new 
people and their curious customs in our re- 
mote Island possessions are truly something 
new under toe-sun as far as lhc experience 
of the United' States is concerned. 

When Adele Lane, the little Sellg star. U

remarks of the actor anent fcfa future rela- 
tions with the concern. The powers that

J. Louis Breltlngcr, chairman of the Cen- 
sor Board, announced last week that any 
Pennsylvania exhibitor showing uncensored

B. L. of A., 1'cnnsylvanla Branch, will start 
suit this week, in order to test the validity 
of the new law, Mr. Wheeler, speaking for 
the exhibitors, said the suit would toe based 
on three contentions namely : "That the free- 
dom of the press Is violated, that It Is class 
legislation, and that trial by Jury is denied."

will make a Btrong fight against the Censor- 
ship Ordinance, which they are acVvlsed by 
eminent lawyers is constitutionally weak.

and notable cast, "appeared dn the photoplay 
which has recently been produced by tho

an arrangement made irltti the Stellar Photo- 
play Co., to appear la "Forgiven" on tbe 
speaking stage for one week before the re- 
lease of one of the greatest melodramas as « 
photoplay ever thrown oa lbs screen. 

Mr. Forsberg snd Wm. Kobt. Daly, the 
director of this photoplay and the members 
of the Stellar Photoplay Stock Co., traveled 
through Florida, Alabama. Texas and Mexico 
la order to get the proper locations for the 
scenes for this great photoplay -which Is 
about to be released. 

Within a amort time this photoplsy will

Alfred Norton, the character actor, en- 
gaged espedsUy by Charles J. Hits to play 
Stanley Hargreaves, In "The Million DoUse 
Mystery," will enter the fanatBa-Padac bal- 
loon race. Mr. Norton reeeatiy made an as- 
cension with Leo Stevens, the famous avi- 
ator, and came very nearly losing his life. 
The scene required Mr. Norton to be rescued 
from the roof of e house by Aviator Stevens. 
It was the first time such a picture has ever 
been attempted, because of the difficulty in 
guiding a balloon accurately. This rescue 
provided one of the thrills to the great 
Tbanhouser Mutual series, and for that rea- 
son Mr. Stevens agreed to nafce the danger- 
ous house top landing, which was accom- 
plished successfully. 

Now Mr. Norton wants to become an avi- 
ator. "Af:er Leo Stevens rescued me to 
mid air," Mr. Norton said is commenting oa 
lils proposed ballooning, "I felt that when 
I landed I would never again get Into A 
balloon basket. 

"Bat I soon changed my mind when I 
looked down and saw the Hudson River 
lying under me, seemingly like a great silver 
thread. There was no danger, and I 'began 
to love the flight through (pace. 

"Before we landed I became a regular air 
fan, and that I am now. I made arrange- 
ments to enter the balloon race to be held at 
tho Panama-Pacific Exposltise. Otr. Stevens 
will construct my balloon for rae. and ho will 
be the pilot.*" 

Mr. Norton is the first motion picture actor 
to take up ballooning aa a pastime. 

Pbok Margarita Fischer comes the Query, 
"Are Peacock Poathera Unlucky?" Margsrita 
played tbe lead In the Beauty production. 
'The Peacock Pearlier Vkm." and toe fan she 
used was of beautiful Spanish make, Inlaid 
with gold. The fan was broken and had to 
be sent to Madrid, Spain, to be repaired. 
What the expense will be Is keeping Mar- 
garita guessing.

first of June, 1918, be has been working 
strenuously building up the Pan-American 
Film Co. to Its present state of efficiency, 
and it is now managed under department 
heads. *> that the chief executive can take 
an occasional breathing spell. Many tempt- 
big offers have been mads Mr. Shipmaa for 
co-operation in connection with various pro- 
gressive enterprises, but tbe growth and suc- 
cess of the Pan-Amerlcsn bas been such that 
no outside temptations have been sufflcleait 
to cause his alleglannc to waiver. 


Since the vresentatlon of "Cabin*," the 
Italia Film Company's spectacular produc- 
tion of Gabriele D'Anaunxlo's scenario, at 
tbe Knickerbocker, on June 1. Wenba t 
lioeseher, who are conducting the American 
tour, have been besclged with tetters from 

Fieople Interested In history, religion snd 
Iterstnre, inquiring as to tbe exact meaning 
of tbe title and whether or not "Cabirla" 
Is a biblical story. 

The action of "Cabirla" takes place la the 
third century, B. <_'., daring the second Panic 
War, and the hlstsrlcal events pictured are: 
Hannibal's passage over the Alps, the erup- 
tion of Mt. Aetna, the Battle of Caimae, 
wherein fifty thousand Boansos were slain ; 
tbe destruction of the Bomsn fleet by Ar- 
chimedes, who. with the aid of powerful 
mirrors, set the .ships afire; tbe Fall of 
Syracuse before the Bonua army headed by 
Mareellas. ths defeat of the Caxtbagenlan 
army under Syphax, by Sclplo; the burning 
of his camp, and tbe Battle of Stems, to 
which the entire Gartfaagenlan amy was 
•naihuated. Hannibal escaping with but a 
handfal of men. 

The romantic story which Is oietsred deals 
with the delivery of a Soman child from the 
aacriflesi attar of the Temple of Metoch, 
god of (Ire, by a herculeaa Nomldiaa slave, 
whs, with his master, a Roman soldier, Is 
In Carthage as a apy la the interests of 
Rome.. Several years later she Is Identified 
as the child who -tvas to have been sacrificed, 
but is pardoned by Sophonlsba, wife of the 
Numldlan King. After the defeat of flypfiax's 
forces she «g»iw meets the Roman and his 
Stave. They fall In lore and leave for their 
satire land. She Is then christened "CaM- 
rla," which means "saved from the turbn- 
ient flames of fate." 

Isabelle Lowe, for three years starred to 
the part of Jone. is "Tbe Trail of the Lone- 
some Pine," recently finished her tour with 
the company, and arrived in New York to 
find that she Is very much In demsad a* a 
motion picture actress. Miss Lowe has re- 
ceived offers from several of the film com- 
panies, and may accept one from the Fa- 
mous Flayers. Her stags work Is very simi- 
lar to that of Mary Plckford, and ber wide 
experience as a stock actress and as a star 
fits her for film work, 


For years a dally news film has been con- 
sidered an Impossibility, and tbe dlmcBltiM 
attending such a radiral Innovation entirely 
Insurmountable, Paths, however, after 
months of careful consideration of tbe ques- 
tion and a thorough surrey of the field, de- 
clares it not only to be •possible, hut to be 
needed, and win soon pat the new rervlce 
on ths market. In view of the widespread 
interest which hss greeted the announcement 
ef the launching of tbe Paths Dally News, 
Mr, Uosgland, who Is personally supervising 
i he new venters, was asked for some in- 
formation concerning it. 

"In the first place," asld Mr. Doaglead. 
"we believe ihst there is a real and expressed 
demand for news in pictures that Is ebta- 
hitely now snd fresh, and that comes to the 
theatre patron right hot off the bat, ao to 
speak. To read of some great event in the 
papers, and then within an boar or two te 
see that event to motion pictures will cer- 
tainly b« most novel and Interesting, and the 
people whs are the last court of appeal, 
wilt want It and expect It. Thus the ex- 
hlWror msy run each day tbe two hundred 
feet or so thst will eomiirlse each day's In- 
stallment, snd then nt Ice end of the week 
show the full 1,000 feet, comprising the 
selection from the most Interesting of the 
tvarld's events, 

"Frankly, I believe that but one house in 
the world could turn ont sack s daily nsws 
film snd make it of universal Interest, and 
that Is Pstbe. It Is mainly s question of 
orrnn I ratios snd equipment, and see, with 
over sixty different offices and studios in all 

fnrts of the world, hare unequalled facilities. 
•atbe's Weekly has in the Cnited States 
alone, thirty-seven camera men. who ire lo- 
cated permanently In all the central points. 
It Is s pretty bard matter to find anything 
of real Interest getting away from these 
trained news gatbcrern." 

"We can receive, develop, print snd send 
out films by malt oa one sad the same day. 

Please note those words 1>r mail for speed !f 
important to mt, and only (Jade Bern's mails 
oan give us the speed we require." 

"Over here we believe that w« have s real 
■winner, and you can't pssy that up say lew 
stongry. Already the exhibitors bsve shown 
s remarkable Interest to the News and the 
bookings are coming In It Is by tbo 
numerous letters «nd by thi bookings thst we 
are fedllng the pukse of the trade, snd we 
know that it is beating strongly for tbe 
Pathe Dally News."

Monica, Cal., has returned to the coast after 
a mouth's vacation. Ho will resume his 
duties In the Far West as special producing

ciation with the Vitagrapb Company, be 
elected to remain a Vitagraphcr. Mr. Stur- 
geon has produced a number of wonderful 
pictures, among which Is the sensational 
Broadway success, now running at the Vlta-

In the metropolis. If past performances are 
any criterion, Mr. Sturgeon will be beard 
from In the near future. 

John Bunny, of the Vltagraph Flayers, has 
a fad. It is the collecting of bis name and 
expressions about himself in foreign lan- 
guages This has become a very Interesting 
and enlo} able pastime for the Jolly come- 
dian, as mere Is usually a descriptive phrase 
attached, describing some Bunny characteris- 
tic. Mr. Bunny's numerous friends who 
•travel over the world knowing of this fad, 
take delight la sending him comments oa 
himself In the various languages, which, 
when translated, appear ludicrous in English. 
One of these friends was to London, Eng., 
recently, on one of the holidays woes there 
were a number of "Lancashire Lads" pres- 
ent. Becoming Interested as to what these 
lads thought of his fat friend, be mingled 
with the crowd assembled before a theatre 
where Danny's picture was displayed. "Owd 
John Boony." "Gud Owd John Boony" wss 
the wsy he heard Bunny described, and sent

produced under the auspices ot the American 
Bankers' Association, will be released to tbe 
near future. It points out the virtue and 
reward of putting aside for a rainy day and 
keeping the wolf from the door in the hour 
of necessity. "The Gang'' Is another one of 
these uplift pictures, exploiting tho reforma- 
tory syatems practised by the children's 
co'jrts; boys woo hsve been denied proper

It shows their training oa farms snd In dis-

Rlngllng Bros, World's Greuttst baa been ray 
way. It canto and the rain came with It. Ram 
has been its boon conipanli.n, .ts side "psrd," en 
each visit to Columbus since Sellsvllle passed to 
memory. But, Columbus la a Blunting stronghold. 
The elearxnts arc i.ot an cuatacle to tho people 
here, and everywhere for that matter, when it 
comes to the RingHng's ; they trudge through slosh 
scd wind and "wlmt not", to Uxor "The Boys of 
Baraboo." And say, the atraw, sawdust, cinders, 
tanliark and planks the UlLgliuga have purchused 
would together u-iike a roauway from tho AHe- 
ghenys to the Rockies. They certainly do buy what 
I've enumerated and use the snm<- lavishly to 
keep their patrons' "understandluga" out u( iho 

The show ln Ibe downpour of rain descrllwd 
turned ]»eople away aftornoou and night. You 
see those ln the Census are positive the Rlngllng*' 
will look after thici in all kluda of weather, this 
catering to the public Is a atioug Rlngllng jioshcs- 
slon. It made and built them. It In salve that 
beats the Mexican, Drop Case, pud oilier bran-Is. 

This year tbe Rlngllngs offer as opening num- 
ber of their program the stupendous historic lllhle 
spectacle, "Solomon and the <)ueen of Hhplm." 

Gorgeously they stage and present II. The 
datale. tbe big flash, talent, beauty, figure, grace, 
art, music and spot light effects lire liH-orpor-.uoil 
and utilised In modem applause drawing manner. 
It Is grrat, It is wonderful. It ln strikingly Rliig- 
llngesque. To me It recalled my first hive, tho 
Old John Robinson "Ten Big." I eau see their 
"King Solomon and Queen of Hhclia." Nothing 
ln circus realms was ever so beautiful as II. Hut 
whan that old show liulshed with It Ihe tibeurs 
hail been applied so often with vigor mid lllier- 
ullty that all remaining «t Ibe wltuliip wore a 
few ballet girls. "The unkliidcat cut nf all," 
the hardest rap the Robinsons ever gave iho 
ais^rtacle was shaving Solomon's wblsaeru and 
culling his hair, and forcing ttlieba to buy her 
own make-up. 

The displays of Iho three rings, two slages, 
hl]>podrome track and midair acrcnu were l-unier- 
ous, well balanced, and harmonised good all tho 

The clowns were many, and their stunts laugh 

Iirodueers, aindlcublo to tlie "lilts of Hie Day" 
n polltlcK. Kocleta- and foreign courts. 

The lllpiiodroaie llaces were like all pmdeees- 
sors. I wish some circus owner would apply the 
Biblical standard — "the first aball lie last mid the 
last shall be first" — and bavc the ruces Initiatory, 
and liken the event unlo the old OuIIm-iim of 
Rome, the neat-egg, as It were, of tlie circus. 
Hear me, aomo oiieulng number It could be. 

People are still talking of Rlngllng Urea.' 
Military Band. None better. J. J. Richards, con- 
ductor, Is all the money — with "notes" thrown 

The menagerie, according to tbe ministers and 
women aud children, Is isir-excellent. And tho 
street parade la a patrenage maker. The train 
of eighty cars, the horses and wagoais, nnd canvas. 
All are down 10 allspice. 

I found the two gigantic features to Is) Mljarca, 
who Is justly crowned 'The Mexican Wire 
Wliard." and Lew Graham, who, at announcing 
acts slid feats and concert. Is beyond the .--hnilow 
of n doubt "Tbe Wltard of Voice and Language." 
He has a elite abow with the big thing that 
dwindle* bis past efforts Into Insignificance. All 
bats are off to this splendid premier. 

I close with short tribute to the most Important 
men with the trick, without whom owner, mana- 
ger, agent and performer would be lu a bard 
way — tlie boss cnuvanman, his assistants, ttm 
eanvasmen, and "raxorliaoks." I have always 
been for these folks. My heart, my prayers, my 
best wishes go out to them. I began my circus 
life with them, I have a uoy bow working with 
stakss and rope nnd sledge. 1 want to live to 
see them get their Just due. 

Bless all ln circus life!

teal ftartdeo. Knofn the »ooks of the crowd 
It aeemed aa If Youngatown doubled Its 
population In the last year. To-day we are 
having real circus weather. 

Just received very bad news from the hoe- 

Sltal, in Warren, Ta., stating that John 
I'Uonnell, of the I'ete Cornalla Troupe. 
*«•. ' > passed away yeatcrdey. John was taken sick 
*•■ last Thursday with, n bad cold which kept 

fetttng worse, and when we reached Warren 
be doctors advised him to go to the hospi- 
tal, where they pronounced It a case of 
double pneumonia. Ily John's death Pete 
Cornalla looses one of his best men, and us 
hoyi loose one of our liveliest and moat 
sociable mates. 

Some matinee, and tome night shew. Both 
tum-awayfl. If business keeps up this way 
Old Uncle Ben will be buying the trick back 
again. He certainly sola a gold mine thla 
season. * 

OH City. Pa., Kay 28.— At last we reach 
; the lot It Is one Que. long drill, at the end 
of the trolley line- we get full value for 
our money on this ride. And when we 
landed In the jungle the colored rough- 
necks and razorbacks went out on a striken. 
So It waa a case of everybody pitch In 
and work ; everybody. Including ticket sell- 
ers, ushers, candy butchers and performers. 
Take it from me. that big ton went up 
quicker to-day than It has for the last five 
years. It went up so quickly that the 
strikers were so ashamed that they broke 
the strike and went back on the Job, It 
was too late for a parade, so we bad a 
little rest after all that strenuous work, and 
the boys alt needed It. 

Let's hopo this is the only strike thla 

Hesdvlllc, Pa., May 27. — nave a real lot 
today, three blocks from the nvaln street In 
town. This only happens once a season. At- 
rlvd In town very early. Nine o'clock we 
were grated with a very heavy thunder 
shower. Ten o'clock the clouds rolled by 
and let the parade use the rainy day -ward- 
robe without even getting sprinkled. Well, 
that saves something anyway, so wby should 
we worry. At it again. Once more wo bave 
thorn sitting out oh the track. Well, aa 
Louis Outtcnburg says : "'DIs Is some busl- 
iichs." Our fisherman were all on tbo Job 
today. Tbls time the big catch goes to 
I'ied Ccvene. He landed a fifteen pound 
-wotioper. It was a guessing contest 4n the 
dressing room for two hours as to what

from Jerusalem, 
'., Warren, O., May 28.— From MeadMlle we 

made a Jump of Ufty-nlnc miles. Got us In 
town with tbo first rays of the aun. Another 
made to order lot. Regular July weather. 
Ono of the Hardlg Bros, is trying to make 
a side show out of our dressing room. He 
Is pulling au opposition to Zip. of the Bar- 
sum ft Bailey Show. Before It Blips my mind, 
we have a real baseball team with the ahow 
tbls season. Mother Stantz (famoua for her 
x-ray gowns) will play the part of treasurer. 
I pity anyono that tries to bamboosle any 
?oncy ■bills. Let me Introduce you to Mrs. 
Arenson, Abc'a wife, she Is with us for a few 
day*. Abe's dog is very sick and It needs a 
real doctor. So you know the old saying.

Ashland, O., May 20. — We had aome en- 

f:lneer last night, one of those wise guys. 
iast week he was shooting empty freight 
cars into the yard. He must think every 
train has to be shot around In the same 
manner, for be slopped every five miles to 
nee bow many he could knock out of the 
bunks. After coming to life, he Anally got 
us In town about 10.30. Ashland haa Just 
been put on tbo map, so we get a medium 
size crowd to-day, with real Summer weather. 
Tlio grass on the Jot Is about a foot and a 
half high. There seems to be an epidemic 
of feet getting hurt today. Little Helen 
Cornelia dropped a pair of scissors on her 
foot and made quite a cut. Mrs. De Koch 
tripped over n guide rope and fractured her 
ankle. And I'cfc Cornalla and Kid Kerrmrd 
are both walking around with canes. Al. 
West, our bine ointment clown, wanta It 
knowu thla is not his first season In ebow 

Kenton, 0., May SO. — Well, boys, tbla la 
kick- In day again. Did aujonc forget It? 
If you have, Doc Springer will put you wise. 
"Wo are ono lucky bunch, another dandy day 
aud lot Well, this Is the beat matinee this 
season. Somo crowd, and nearly all In 
while. It looks more like a May party than 
a elrcus audience. Yes, that's the sideshow, 
and If that Isn't Harry Nugent, the boy 
-wonder, from Brooklyn. Sure no Is married, 
and hn Is only twenty-one. Why did he do 
It I Well, look at the musical platform. 
That Is the cause of Harry leaving home. I 
don't llnnio him. Do you? What Is the 
matter over In the muscle dancing depart- 
ment? There are only two girls there now. 
lvxcusrt me, Harry. I love muscle dancers, 
and I must see where M. lingerie, our best 
dnnccr. Is. Well, some more bad news. She 
was hurt this morning by knocking her head 
against a aide pole, and was sent to the hos- 
pital. We all wish her a quick recovery. 

Columbus, 0., May Si. — Sunday, and a real 
town. Yet, It la 11 o'clock and there Is the 
lot. Bggs and ham again, some treat. Boys, 
you can double up on the full house gag 
today. How's that? Why we left the unP 
formed Ball Team over in Kenton to get 
what nioncv we left in town, and to teach 
the Wig Warns how to play ball. What's 
that? The ball team liave booked two games 
for to-day. Somo manager, Bob Stlckney, on 
the lob. Sure he has a team, the CIotto 
ltcbels, snd they have some record, haven't 
loat n game tbls season. Played the Colum- 
bus State team to-day and beat them by a 
score of 10 to 0. will let you know nest 
week bow the boys at Kenton made out. The 
Clown Rebela used the regular show make- 
up and suit. They were assisted by the en- 
tire clown band of forty pieces. Qato receipts 
totaled to 1100. 


Howe's London Shows struck a vir- 
gin Bold Decoration Day, when It played 
Wyandotte, Mich., population 12,000. with a 
territory of 13.000 to r.ull on. In spite of 
the counter attractions the big top was lilted

pry piu-kod them In as this was the first ahow 
to eslaolt in this city In years. It waa »up- 

roscd that tho territory was too near Detroit

strated that a «ood, clean rtiow and plenty 
Of attractive paper liberally distributed,

Movndsvilli, W. Va., May 31. 

Another week and still nothing new to tell 
about either the volume of the business or 
the weather. We have the very best circa s 
wiutter Imaginable, and the business haa 
been heavy accordingly. At Coshocton we 
had great difficulty with the lot It was 
on a level below the street, and a very bad 
approach that the wagons could not get over. 
But we "gillied" the stuff from the street, 
put up the side wall and gsvc two very well 
patronized shows. Cambridge was good to 
us. Caldwell stretched the capacity. Mari- 
etta was big, and yesterday, at Slstersvllle, 
we recorded a record, a tremendous business. 

Yesterday Kit Carson, the rifle shot. Joined. 
Carson Is a grandson of the famous old 
scout end tra/pper. Kit Carson, of historical 
fame, end Is not only a remarkable shot him- 
self, but dresses Ms act In cowboy costume, 
and performs from a slack wire. Kit waa 
working vaudeville circuits last Winter, and 
Joined at tbo earliest possible moment. 

Tio-morrow Joe llerrrra and wife— the 
Mexican Joe of Pawnee Bill fame — moke their 
first appearance In our arena. Joe la proba- 
bly one of the best all around men In a Wild 
West arena In the show business today. A 
past master at the art of riding backers and 
a wonder with a rope. The fart that he 
was chief of cowboys on the Pawnee M'.H 
Show for many years Is a sufficient credential 
to get Wm Irf the biggest time of the Wild 
West. He makes a five horse catch throwing 
the' loop with his foot, and with bla bands 
can catoh as high as ten running bornr*. 
Joe will add oon*Kk>rauTe lustre to our roping 
act, which with McCoy, Stokes and Dare Bed 
Star Is now quite above the average. 

Col. Cummins Is this year taking care of 
the newspapers with the show. Besldej his 
striking appearance, the Colonel has a most 
engaging way about him, and never falls to 
interest the city edltov to the extent of at 
lea* a column of space. City editors are, 
as a rale, hard nuts to crack, when free ad- 
vertising Is wanted, but they are all grist In 
•the Colonel's mill. Col. Cummins will pre- 
cede the show by one day to Buffalo, aud 
an-ange with the newspapers there. 

Jack Beach, well known and beloved from 
hla many seasons with the Tvihlte tops, and 
lately from the Wallace Show, is handling 
the tickets on the No. 1 side show box, also 
taking care of the local advertising with the 
show. Jack never falls to get an "ad." from 
one or two -merchants In the town, and from 
the way hla signs look In parade, and the 
convincing text of his announcements in 
the big show arena, I am sure his clients arc 
always satisfied. Jack Is of the salt of the 
earth, and respected and liked by all who 
know and remember blm. Joe Kelly la on the 
other side show box. 

Now for a real surprise Last Monday 
morning. In Columbus— Just a short ride 
from Monday's town— George Slocumh and 
Mary Webber were united In the holy bonds 
of wedlock. If that la a surprise to the 
oany friends of the couple who will read 
this. It was no leas a surprise to the 
people on the show. It la not known if the 
romance Is one of this season's making or 
if it extends back farther than the twentv- 
flfth of April, this year, but, at any rate, I 
never saw a happier couple, nor one more 
apparently satisfied with the choice they 
made. George has been with tie Young 
Buffalo Show since Its Inception, and no one 
around the trick enlnys a higher regard thnn 
his wife. I most sincerely join in heartiest 
wishes for a long and happy life. 

Was talking to Professor Bower, director 
big show band, thla morning, and he told me 
that be had a quartette in training to use In 
connection with his band In the concert be- 
fore the Bhow. In proof of bis statement he 
took me over to the bandstand and had the 
quartette sing one. 



Although there waa a lot of rain up to the 
Cleveland, 0., totes, Monday and Tuesday, 
May 26 and 20, everybody with the ahow la 
in good spirits. 

The spectacle. "Solomon and the Queen of 
Sheba" Is one big attraction. The way li Is 
put on Is wonderful. In fact Mie whole circus 
Is the best ever. The clowns aje many, and 
the beet that ltlngHng's have ever had. There 
is Al MJa'eo, who has been with the Klngtlng's 
for the past twenty or thirty years, wit-) Is 
Just nke n two-yeasr o!i The writer hud en 
(occasion to meet Al.'s son, Steve Miaeo. a 
couple of weeks ago, aud asked (how his 
father A!., was. The reply was "father la 
still kicking around and he Is certainly kick- 
ing ajvjurul too." 

Oeorgo Hartsell la another old etnnd-b.v of 
the lUngllng clowns, and William Carroll, 
another veteran of the days of "Dan Rice, 
is with this ehow. Billy Jameson Is cer- 
tainly pulling off some great clown stunts. 
Talk about a homo town booster, Hilly cer- 
tainly boosts Salem, 111. -Tbla city la lnrger 
than New York to Billy. Jim Sprigs la 
certainly woaklng the policeman to perfec- 
tion. In tbo number where he makes love to 
the hired girl (Tom Mnrdo, of course), while 
ho Is wheeling; the baby, he eays, In half- 
tmdur-hls-broath tone: ^'I do tils on the 
square at home." The writer learned that 
Jim has a little youngster at home, and does 
wheel It around. There Is Annt AcgcEtnd 
with his tnugo skirt, which Is great, and Ed. 
Memo, with nls transparent skirt. Is also a 
scream. Warren Balrd U also pulling somo 
great ones. -His trained pig tie had list 
season was killed. Someone said lie fed It 
ton much malted milk and killed IL 

The Air Plane, tho Jockey and the Indian- 
apolis Speedway Burlesque were very funny. 
The Mardos aro certainly doing their part 
of entertaining. Their ash can stunt. In tho 
craty number. Is a scream, and deserved 
them a lot of credit Also throwing the balls 
at the head through the canvas, a "county 
fair" burlesque, is very funny. Jew Nnthars. 
Del. Allen, Prank Burns, Tom Burns, Roily 
Wilson, Boy McDonald, ddoso Davis. Dart 
Banbard, Joe Detorcllt A. Detorelll and 
every clown wTrib. the show deserves special 
mention. Julius Tumour was probably there 
also, hut 'tho writer failed to see him. There 
were also other names that deserved special 
mention, but owing to the swiftness of bheso 
numbers It Is impossible to see everything. 

Johnny Arte, equestrian director, deserves 
a lot of credit. Besides belcg one of tbc best 
directors In tbls country or, In fact In any 
country, Is also a champion trick rider. 
This he proved when he won the Richard 
K. Fox trophy two years ago in San 
Francisco. When lie woo his championship 
ho was up against the best riders of the 
West, and also the world. Although he did 
not have bis own horse he picked one ho 
had never seeu before and won the trophy. 
Yon should sec his wind storm machine, a 
new Invention. I don't knew whose. 

About thirty cars and all extra equipment 
wero burned In Cleveland on Monday night. 
May 26, wtrcn the lumber yards were on Are 

The show moved out of Cleveland Wcdnes- 
dwy A. M., to Marlon, 0., on lUngllng, Spc'.l-

By shooting Folly as she flies, Intent 

On killing Oare at Barry Hunter's Shows. 

In order to try and make this communication, 
heralding the fame of the Great Barry O. Hunter 
Shows, crlglnal (a most hcrruliau task, too, I as- 
sure you, denr ballahooer). 1 will emit reference lo 
our "having arrived at New Oaatle;" "the loca- 
tion of the lot;" "kind of weather It was" Sun- 
day afternoon when the Great Joy Dispenser* 
steamed Into the city. 

Both they and the million showmen readers 
will note that the Harry O. Hunter Shows are 
of too much Importance to eat op time and space 
In describing atmosphere effects. 

Mr. Hunter visited this bustling; hnrly-burly 
town lsst season. Both be snd the splendid at- 
tractions he presented then made most fsiorshle 
Impressions on the high, middle snd lower elasses 
— If there are distinctions of caste — "which there 
shouldn't be." What wonder that bis srrlval 
with a show— or a series of shows — pester, 
grander and more talented snd beautiful this 
season, should have been balled with delight 1 
Which they were, even to the point of cltlscns 
chortling paeans of joy as the Burner Imperial

colors flying snd small bojs shouting for very 

Our very pood friends snd confreres, Jonce 
Bros. A Wilton's Cirrus, wns at be station (most 
of them) to greet ns also. Considering that this 
first class animal snd circus show was to he our 
rival In tbe exhibiting business that day and 
evening, the hand-clasps of tbe Banter Shows 
people was Just ss warm snd congratulations Just 
as sincere. 

And whether It was tbe unenvlona altitude and 
spirit that prompted both aargegations certain It 
was that both circus and Hunter Shows were 
greeted that night with audiences that strained 
tbe capacity of tbe several lots. 

"You can't keep a good show down," remarked 
Mr. Banter, as he slsed up the phalanx of folks 
hurrying to "see tbe circus," and noted, with 
perhaps more pride, the Immense multitudes that 
were surging snd crowding by thousands Into his 
big shows. 

"Opposition," replied Official Annonncer Trex- 
Ier, "fi not only the Ufe of tbe show trade, but 
it Is the tabasco sauce of business, baring no 
reference bo clams." 

A little Incident occurred, which, to the man 
with a sense of humor— and most troupers hsve 
It big — Is worth repeating. For several weeks 
past Manager Frank Knorr. team-mate with Tom 
Scully In managing the Professional Beauty Cur- 
riculum, has been trying to bur a flageolet. lie 
lias a tom-tom of real Egyptian pattern snd 
sound; also cymbals and castanets, but he welt 
knew thst a chorus of beautiful maidens without 
the presence of a real old time heathen flageolet 
was like absence of Hamlet from the play. 

Mr. Knorr advertised In Pittsburgh pspere (at 
$2 75 per Inch — think of HI). He haunted the 
music stores, looked op antiquarians who dis- 
cover strange musical curios; at the same time 
ottering rewards for the petite hole-drilled wlerdly 
expressive Instrument. But it all came to naught. 

The Hunter Imperial Marine Band were ap- 

fealed to. but in the musical wilds of fsr off 
tails, where they were born to the ravishments 
of sweetest concord, they had never descended 
to the plebeian pipings of flageolets. 

But, "all things conn to him who waits." 
Yesterday eve, aa tbe ladles of the gingery ballet 
were donning the filmy, diaphanous openworks, 
preparatory to coming revels, there drifted Into 
tbo big !o» a really-tmly Turk — net forgetting tho 
fex and beggy trouserings. Hs was su exact 
replica of All Bastion, who was crond vlilcr to 
Caliph Haroun Rachld when he wont tibottt Bagdad 
disguised In search of novelties in the under world. 
More marvellous e till I The snnrlby stranger 
curried, firmly grasped In baud, an antique flageo- 
let I 

Be was larlstted before he reached tbe lecture 
platform of tbe liourls. anil had be not been of 
tbe strong-arm Arnb-qualltlcd desert habitats, bit 
pipe would have been confiscated. 

And tbe Turk wouldn't sell bis flageolet nt any 
price. One would hsve sworn It was first cousin 
to Aladdin's wonderful lamp. 

Manager Knorr finally bad to give tho player a 
losltlon at a good salary (four or live per) for 
the season, before he would listen to nny exchange 
for his precious litstrumen. And, then, tbe man- 
agement bad to agree to furnish All a prayer rug 
nnd serve him rice at meals. 

Bnt In this annoying Incident one ftet wot 
learned that Managers Knorr A Scully appreciate, 
in Orler.tal "odlngs" a dageolet is the keynote 
of the orchestra, and creates that Indlsperislble 
lotus Dower atmosphere so essential to Arabian 
Nights scenes. 

As this gees to typewriter Hie Ilcnter Baseball 
teams are playing a game at Kiu-ccde Park fur

tons on the side. Is looked for Inter in the week. 

Manager It. E. Jennings, of tbe big motor- 
drome, is happy over the nrccssloc of (mother 
motorcycle rider, Johnny Jenkins, from Chicago; 
or "Chi," as he calls It. John Is a fearsome 
little rider, snd keeps his team-mate, Warren 
Kropp, busy Inside the big bowl, especially when 
tbe order goosup from tho bullon, to ihe thrilled 
spectators: "Keep your hands off the railing."

Mr. and Mrs. U. O. Hunter took ndrantige of 
the excellent trolley service snd short distance 
to roll to Voungstown, 0., Wednesday, to visit 
(h?lr rooftree and see if domestic things were 
running nicely. They will be tbe guests of the

Show's staff of expert storekeepa In the "sweets-

protegee of Mrs. Hunter's execuMvc staff of hand- 
some young mnldens. whose smiles are rare In- 
ducement* to patrons. 

John M. Snyder, sn old trouper, now general 
manager of pure food exhibitions throughout the 
United States, under auspices of the Great 
Oroeera' Association, was a visitor lo the Hunter 
Shows. John started life as a sign artist, evo- 
luttng Into a scenic painter, finally landing a 
dosen years ago In the niche nature borncd bint 
for. He bss s reputation world wide as the 
greatest snd best of directors of large plant ex- 
hllilts. John called upon Mr. nnd Mrs. Hunter 
and renewed old recollections, when Ihe world 
hadn't then recognised bis talents ami began Ito 
Mltlss like showers of gold. 

"The next station st which this train will 
stop at will be Sharon I"— sis tbe polite breakrnan 
might announce, looking for promotion and raise 
of salary. The Hunter Shows will draw Into

The new treatment

Many people with tender skins have 
hem misled by the superstition that 
washing the face with stvapniu! water 
is hail for the complexion. 

Dr. I'uscy in his honk on the rare 
of the skin says, "The layer of dirt 
and fat that such persons nccinmilale 
on the skin is a poor substitute for a 
clean, clear skin and is a constant in- 
vitation to various disorders." 

The following treatment with 
Woodbury's Facial Soap is just what 
a tender skin needs to keep it attrac- 
tive and resistant. 

Set) what a difference it will make 
in your akin

Tbe past week's note baa carried tbe bis show 
Into territory where It certainly comes Into Its 
oa-n, tor none of the white tops can attract more 
coin of the realm In Montana than can toe 
Barnes Shows. 

Montana Is Ita old stamping ground, to to 
speak. It's an old timer — visited there so often 
and nlsyed to so many at the state's people — 
satisfactorily, that now when the enow la an- 
nounced tbe date Is looked upon la tbe nature of 
a homecoming affair. 

The route Included two days In Butte — Sunday 
and Monday, Msy 17, 18. Bain hit there, but 
the effect on business was scarcely uotlseable. 
Helena, Oonrad, Great Falls, Standford and 
Lewlstown completed tbe week's towns, and It 
was one of tbe banner weeks In the. show's his- 


'TIs ssld that women are doing everything 
these days. One working aa a tbresblng machine 
saleswoman waa whit I saw recently. 

"Jerusalem Store," says a Urge sign In front 
of a Junk shop In Glendlre, Mont. Tbe clerk In 
charge la an Irishman. 

This happened In Bismarck, Is the town's lead- 
ing department store: A yoang countryman and 
bis wife were In tbe store when s ravlsblnsly 
dressed young woman strolled Into the place and 
began making "eyes" at tbe farmermso. In kls 
efforts to avoid tbe charmer be fell over a barrel 
of salt and broke his leg. It dereloiied later that 
tbe woman In tbe rase was cross-eyed and was 
making eyes st another fellow.

Ends One Half 
the Corns 

Do you know that 
nearly half the corns in 
the country are now 
ended in one way? 

Blue-jay takes out a million 
corns a month.-*** frees from 
corns legions of people daily. 
Since its invention it has ended 
sixty million corns. 

The way is quick and easy, pain- 
less and efficient. Apply B'ue-jay 
at night. From that time on yon 
will forget the corn. 

Then Blue- jay gently undermines 
the corn. In 48 hours the loosened 
corn comes out. There is no pain, 
no soreness. 

Don't pare your corns. There is 
danger in it, and it brings only brief 

Don't use old-time treatments. 
They have never been efficient. 

Do what millions do — use Blue- 
jay. It is modern, scientific. And 
it ends the corn completely in an 
easy, pleasant way.

Jotin Bennett, Mid to bo the oldest snd at ono 
time tbe moit iirouilnent theatrical manager In 
Australia, <Ue<l Bundtr, April 20, at bin resi- 
dence, 8 Men Street, North Sydney, aged elgbty- 

Join Bennett iu heralded h tbo "Father cf 
the Australian 8ta«e." Nearly alxty years ago 
be launched out la * theatrical concern that made 
blm famous, and (are the Australian public tue 
opportunity to ace and bear many or the world's 
then rout famous artists. He carried on many 
theatrea, prominent among which was the old 
Victoria iWtre, lo l'lit Street, Sydney, where 
Messrs. Bordern Brothers now stand. 

Amour tbe great artlata Introduced by blm, or 
under his direction. Included; Anno Bishop, lion 
dl Mursau, Ulslorl, Brooke, Arabella Ooddard, 
Jefferson and Sotberu, an imposing list. Ills own 
reminiscences of theatrical affairs of Australasia 
extend back aa far aa tbe gold fever of the early 
nfthas. tJU father was Immigration agent, and 
brought the drat shipload of free people to Sydney 
orer one hundred years ago. John Ilennett could 
apeak of the old colonial days, and enjoyed the 
extraordinary api and downs which then Invested 
life with more than a species of romance. He 
received bis education at Backer's, la Pitt Street, 
and amonE his schoolfellows were Deniehy, Sir 
George Dlobe, 81: James Valrtax and other notable 

At the age of twenty-one be was the bead of 
a hardware bualneaa in Melbourne, In which his 
vesny business was £700,000. Then it Is said be 
lost £10,000 In a great station of his near Bock- 
hamuion. 'Next he made and lost mora than a 
fortune gold mining In New Zealand and Australia. 
It was lu 1805 that he entered upon bis career 
as a theatrical manager, which lasted twenty 
jeer*. In those days theatrical enterprise wua 
no juke, for apparently a man had to begin by 
Lunolng theatres In every direction. He erected 
a sue theaure at Lamplougu (Vic. J, another at 
Xaluot, and one at luglewood. The last two he 
oi*ued with Ouitavus llrooko and Avo'ilca Jonas 
as Stan, the lXrat with Benry Nell Warner and 
Mrs. Kobert Heir. This lady, who afterward; 
became Mrs. George Darrel). was the sister of 
J. V. Oalbcart. long since tbe Sir 1'cter Xeasle 
of the Australian stage. 

In New Zealand Mr. Bennett built tbe Ibames 
Theatre, which he opened with Mrs. Robert Heir 
and Bote Evani, aud he put up the Newcastle 
Victoria Theatre, which he opened with Helen 
Dtuvray, "Tbe Oaliforula Diamond," as atar. In 
Sydney Mr. Bennett's operations were chiefly car- 
ried on at the Victoria Theatre. Here the new 
lessee opened on Sept. 80, W7i, with Mrs. Heir, 
Morton Tavarea and Miss Surtcea as principal*. 
Tbe company also Included J. W. Sweeney, H. h. 
Douglas and W. J. Holloway. Mr. Bennett had 
previously Introduced Madame Anna Bishop, the 
English soprano, at a concert room in the lloyal 
Hotel, Oeorge Street, originally the first theatre 
In Australia, and then st the Victoria. Mmc. 
Slraonaen made her debut In "The Grand Duchess," 
with Charlea Lascelles aa i'rlnce 1'aul. Lydla 
Howard created a stlt at the Victoria In April, 
18T2, to "Orphtua." At the same time Mr. Ben- 
nett organised a tine concert party for the Ex- 
hibition Building, with Slgnor Gloria as con- 
auctor, and Mae. Agatha States, tbe American 
soprano, tJualnl; the famoua basso, OrlaniiUil, 
baritone, and Boaenatl, tenor. In 1872 Mr. Ben- 
sett produced Frank Hutchinson's "Butcher Baro- 
net," s play founded on tbe claims of tbe Tlch 
borne claimant. The following month the late 
Uirry ttlckards mad* a great success as a serio- 
comic vocalist. Probably the most noteworthy 
engagement Mr. Bennett ever mad* was that of 
Adelaide Blstorl. This great tragedienne arrived 
la Sydney In July, 1878, wltb a complete Italian 
company, the calibre of which may be Judged 
from the fact that it Included Slgnor and Sig- 
nortue Majeroui lu the juvenile lead. At price* 
ranging from 1 pound to 4s. the Italian season 
drew crowded houses. 

Among other famous actors Mr. Bennett Intro- 
duced to Australia were Bland Holt, who was 
Imported from America, and he said that Mr. 
HoM was one of the beat and most hard working 
stars he ever engaged. Among others who played 
at the Victoria were; Oreawlck, Bmlly Melville, 
Armea Beaumont, Horace and Alice Lingard, 
Bottom and Fred Lister, Uerr Bondmann. Miss 
Cleveland, Alfred Dumpier and Amy Hhurwlu. 

Tbe old "Vic" was destroyed by fire on July 
88, 1880, sftcr which Mr. Bennett leased the 
Gaiety Theatre, where Wybert Beeve and Maggie 
Knight, W. E>. Sheridan and other prominent 
artlata appeared. At his benefit at Auckland, 
in the early days, Mr. Bennett was "assisted" 
by. the Duke of Edinburgh, who played a violin 
solo, and by the Hon. Ellott Yarke, A. D. 0., . 
who appeared as Bamlet, an which occasion the 

Sgveraors of three different colonies and the of- 
cere of the entire fleet were present.

Initial presentation at Maxlne Elliott's Theitre

pressing tbe opinion that life for the entertain-

Brady signified that be thought otherwise by

Paley receives daily some heavy profes- 
sional mall for his puMlcaitlons. ''Beautiful 
Eggs" is spreading very rapidly, and It Isn't 
confined In popularity to New York alone, as 
wires axe coming In from Chicago and as far 
West as Frisco. 

His array of professional friends lor so- 
small a house is remarkable, ile Is adding 
new nets to his list of headllners singing his 
songs. Here are some of the artists : Jack 
Norworth, Adele Ritchie, Juliette Dika, 
Knwlcs and White, Ellda Mor.-ls, Gertrude 
Morgan. Demarest an<J Doll, Manson Twins, 
Harry Tlghe, Dorothy Wahl. Maurice Wood,

Frankie Heath. May West. . Freeman and 
Dunham. Coate and Marguerite, Burke and 
Harris. Bell Boy Trio. Uilllo Hill, Farber 
Girls, Irene Orange, Lillian Herleln and hun- 
dreds of others. 

He has a catalogue of wonderful numbers, 
among which you will find "Beautiful Eggs." 
"Oeorglc," "And Then," "Painting New York 
Town, ' "Oh, Mrs. Fortune Teller" and a 
new and beautiful ballad, "Bmgen on the 
Rhine." Eugene Platzman has Just published 
with him two tuneful hesitation waltzes, 
"Kissing Cap" and 'Kitty McKay," which 
ore tlie feature numbers of the June issue of 
the Columbia Phonograph catalogue. 

He will undoubtedly put over several hits 
before the year Is over. 

The Leo Feist Co. has a "new" Boston of- 
fice. Thioit Is. new in the fact that It has 
•been entirely done over. Under tho direction 
of "Billy" Lang, a corps of painters, paper- 
hangers and others havo been on the lob for 
over a week and as a result the local Fclst 
office is one of beauty and a pleasure to 
enter. The color scheme is Ivory white and 
crimson, with pearl gray trimmings, and two 
score or more appropriate pictures adorn the 
walls. New Manogony. pianos have been In- 
stalled, and ihc room for professionals is 
certainly a "dream." 

Since connecting himself with the Water- 
son, Berlin & Snyder concern, Joe Goodwin

of the greatest ballad hits Boston has baa

"In tho Town Where Jane and I Were

that there has been a depression In business 
in general throughout the country. It looks 
like "He Was Always Fooling Around" has 
wakened up things considerably. Funny what 
one song can do.

it Is "He Was Always Fooling Around."

"If I Had My Way" certainly Is In a class 
by Itself where ballads are concerned. It is 
"chock full" of hsart interest, something 
that appeals to eve.Tbody the world over. 
The melody is haunting and clinging. Ono 
cannot get away from It. 

"If They'd Only Move Oil Ireland Over 
Here" Is the king of Irish songs. It is en- 
tirely different from nuy Irish song ever 
written. It can be suns aa a ballad or as a 
otaedy song. It is a gem of the first water. 

"If I Were the Ocean and You Were the 
Shore" Is fast becoming popular and will 
be before long one of the regular ballad hits. 

To mention all the acts who arc using 
"Foolmg Around" would require more space 
that Is allotted us at this writing however, 
HUfflco It to say that It has not fallen down 
for any performer, which Is proof enough of 
the merits of this extraordinary number by 
Billy Jerome and Abner Grccnbcg.

An All star program again holds forth here. 
It leerns to be getting the habit in this bouse 
in presenting nothing l.ut feature acts. 

The third successful week of Mercedes, 
assisted by Mile. Btantone. began June 8, 
nnd this wizard continued to be one of the 
greatest mysteries ever seen in vaudeville. 

Wilton Lackaye, Assisted by Emmett King 
and Ruth Gates, in his latest aketcb, entitled 
"Quits," met with n henrty reception. The skit 
Is very Interesting and holds marked attention 
throughout. Mr. Lacliaye's work was ap to 
his usual standard, nnd the performance of 
his supporting cast was excellent. 

Elisabeth Murray, playing a return engage- 
ment, with her dialect i.ongs and stories, bad 
one of the best positions on the bill, and 
certainly held her own. 

Showing several dances of the Far Rnst, 
Boshanara, a most graceful and beautiful 
young woman, lived up to her reputation as 
one of tbe world's cleverest dancers. 

Smith and Cook. Kith the assistance of 
Marie Brandon, were pun In their entertain- 
ing specialty. ''The Millionaires." That they 
were successful would be putting It mildly. 
The audience simply 'lapped their hands 
sore applauding their efforts. 

Harry Cooper and Hugh Cameron, In a 
sew performance, were the lilt of the bill. 
(See New Acta.) ' 

Ralph Biggs and Katherlne Wltchle, in 
songs and their vcrilon of t.hj tango and 
several different rap*, tat waltzes, had little 
to complain at their reception. Both are 
finished artists In their fine, and walked 
away with a good sited lilt. ( See New Acts.) 

Adler and Arllne, In their offering, "A 
New Ides," went over as usual. It Is easily 
one of the best novelties In vaudeville, and 
Is always sure of success. . 

Woods and Woods Trio, featuring OIHe 
Woods, with their comedy pantomime, "An 
Elopement by Wire," opened the show, but 
bad little trouble in couvluclng the audience 
that they were there as tight wire walkers. 

Tho Hearst-Sellg Weekly, snowing all the 
latest happenings of the past week, was very 
entertainin g and held much atten tion, Jock. 


The trill for June 4-7 Included Bant Mann 
•nd company, In "The Now Leader," and tbe 
buck stage "business" with props and tbe 
etage manager, nnd tbe re-union of the split 
couple by the Dutch music master was 
heartily enioyed. 

Kelly and Galvln. as tho "Straight and the 
Wop," did woll as usual, tbe dialect of the 
little swarthy Italian and the exact lan- 
guage and dress of tbe partner forming a 
marked contrast. Their songs Included 
"He's a Devil," "Fooling Around" and "He 
Had to Swim Back to the Shore." 

John P. Wade nnd company offered 
"Marse Shelby's Chrlutinns Dinner." and the 
devoted darkey, the old massa and the re- 
turning daughter were equally well played. 

Nome and Douglas, a natty and versatile 

many," In Dutch dialect, and a ?rcuchy fin- 
isher with appropriate dances. 

The ToUtn Brothers offered a lively rou- 
tine of acrobatics and tumbling, with comedy 
trimmings, employing a see-saw springboard 
with good effect. 

The four-reel Eclectic, "Faithful Unto 
Df nth," was Interesting. 1/(11. 


Rltlnste (Arthur Barney, nigr.) — There 
were several Important change* In "The Tel- 
low Ticket" company on Monday nlgbt. 
Josephine Victor succeeded Florence Reed ns 
Marya Varenkn. and guve a splindld per- 
formance. Edward Foley la now the Ameri- 
can Journalist, the role created by John 
riarrymoro, and Frank Losce has Emmet 
Corrlgan's old role. The newcomers gave 
excellent accounts of themselves. 

BIJou (Walter Rosenberg, mgr.) — Six 
■vaudoviille acts were shown 8, Including : The 
Judges, comedy acrobats ; Barrett and Both- 
well. Mile. Maxlne. ventriloquist ; Bayes, 
dancer: BlSBett and Evelyn, song nnd dance; 
Bx.Jock«r McDowell aod Princess.

Hew Amsterdam. — It nay be said at 
tbe very beginning of this review that the 
eighth edition of tbe Zelgftld Follies to a 
huge success. In comedy ft is far and away 
tbe best of tbe FoUle productions. Of the 
"book" there Is so little tbst one wonders 
If its an t dot, George V. Hobart, can take bis 
royalties without Mushing; for the plot ( ?) 
begins and ends with tbe first scene. 

The production Is unusually rich. There 
are dozens of beautiful aad shapely young 
women, who wear tbe most gorgeous -ana 
startling gowns and costumes and bats, and 
they all tasks s. feast for tbe eye. There 
are catchy songs and cleverly executed 
dances by the seers. In abort, there to not a 
dull moment In tbe entire entertainment, 
which lasts more than three hours and a 
Halt Tbe lyrics, too, are very good 

The scenic equipment Is wonderful. Tbe 
first scene shows the "Reception Hall In 
Hell," a rather unique picture. A scene (hat 
brought much applause showed Forty-second 
Street and Fifth Avenue during the recent 
snow storm of last Whiter. A scene of great 
beauty was "Prunella's Garden." A patriotic, 
tableau closed tbe first act The famous 
generals who took part In the Revolutionary 
War, tbe Mexican War of 1819 nsd the Civil 
War were Impersonated by the men of the 

In the second' act the scenes shown were 
"In Peacbland, ' a picture of exquisite charm, 
end this was followed by an interior set, 
which was beautiful and unique. 

A scene out of the ordinary, and one that 
was loudly applauded, showed a skyscraper 
in the course of erection. The dosing scene 
represented Palm Beach, one of tbe most 
beautiful sets we nave ever seen. 

Bnt it Is in Its comedy scenes and dancing 
numbers that this unique and popular enter- 

place of much oeaaty and a superb dancing 
floor. John Henry Hears Is the manager of 
this resort, which has jumped into Instant 
popularity with pleasure seekers. Kelcey. 




Sow such shows are continned here makes 
mystery easuer. Not only are the programs 
continuing "as good," but tbey have been 
growing stronger with tbe incoming change 
of Bin each ''naif," until it seems that Harry 
Swift wul have to ta*e bis plump little self 
around the comer and borrow tbe Alhambra, 
so as be may accommodate the moss that are 
swarming into tbe H. 0. H. afternoon and 
night these days, when "by the beautiful 
sea" to so popular a phrase, as well as a 
long number. 

The prices remain the same and the house 
is "making money," which again speaks 
worlds of things for the Harlem Opera 
House weekly reel of pictures, which shows 
on the screen neighborhood happenings from 
week to week, and the idea of which crept 
out of that brilliant "round thing" that 
poises atop of Manager Swift's shoulders. 

And in "back" of the house, running the 
stage In the proper way as only proper stage 
manager* know bow, la tbe little laughing 
manager, with a voice that reminds you or 
the Metropolitan Opera House, Sol Levoy. 
There are stage managers who are stage 
managers — Sol Levoy. 

There are stage managers who know what 
a stage manager should be able to do— -Sol 

There are stage managers who think they

There are stage managers who do know

Vampire Must Have Known My Wife." To 
hear the comcdlin sing it is a rare treat He 
has a golf gams with Errol that Is a comedy 
classic, and the scene on top of tbat sky- 
scraper threw tbe audience Into fits of laugh- 

Another strong favorite was Leon Errol, 
who la a comedian In every sense of that 
touch abased word. As a comedy "stage 
drunk" he is without a superior. He is re- 
sponsible for much of tbe fun of tbe show. 
As an ccentrlc dancer he Is a wonder with 
a capital W. Tbe audience laughed Itself 
tired when he wandered Into a tango parlor 
while he was Intoxicated and was mistaken 
by the young lady pupils for tbe new dancing 
teacher. His efforts to keep on his feet are 
mistaken by the pupils for new dancing steps 
and tbey try to Imitate him. Nothing fu:i-

A big bouse was on band Monday matinee. 
Manager Kahn bas installed an Ice Air 
Blower In the lobby of Ms theatre, which is 
very inviting to the sweltering throngs of 
Fourteenth Street. 

Smith and Harvey, a man and woman, do 
a classy piano and singing act and easily 
topped the Monday bill. Smith plays the 

£iano well and sings nicely, and looks well 
i his> dress suit. Miss Harvey is a little 
"jewel" of a performer. She sings wril and 
puts her numbers over great Sue is grace- 
ful and a pretty dancer, and knows bow to 
wear her gowns, which are ont of tbe or- 
dinary. This little girl to some class. Tbe 
act went big. 

Ethel Dawson and company of four people, 
a girl and two men riding bicycles, and a 
young man announcing, offered a sensational 
bicycle act of riding around a small upright 
track. The act Is good. With a little mors 
work It will be in first class shape. 

The Poem-o-Grapb, a picture of tbe fa- 
mons poem, "Tbe Face On the Bar-room Floor," 
with a lecturer reciting the poem at the same 
time. It to a good piece of business and 
went big. 

Delphino and Delmora offered their musical 
novelty act, which went nicely. They do a 
good act. 

Hatlen and Burt do a neat singing and 
dancing act The girl makes several changes 
of costumes. Their dancing and singing are 

The Strand Trio of three young men have 
good voices and put their numbers over well, 
but the comedy Is lacking In places. 

Billy De Vens and company of two young 
ladles and two men offer a Western sketch. 
One man sings very well. There isn't much 
to the set sb it is rather silly. 

Koppe Trio of young men opened the show 
with a hoop rolling and club juggling act 

Gale Stewart offered four numbers and 
wore some tasty costumes of good quality. 

Sprague and Dixon offered a singing and 
talking act, StiL 


and Stage Manager Sol Levoy to sing you 
lullaby melodies, as lie continues to do at 
each show, why, tbat aforesaid cbatter about 
capacity business Is not so mysteriously 
mysterious after all, and J. J. Murdock must 
feel safe in knowing that Swift and Levoy 
are headliners enough to assure tbe corking

Hardeen, be who wriggles from any sort 
of vise, was the headllner when we caught

is also a certain amount of real danger In 
this scene, for If either of the comedians 
should fall he might be seriously Injured. 

Ed. Wynne, with Ills funny hat. fitted in 
nicely and got many laughs with bis gags. 

Little Anna Pennington, In a striking cos- 
tume, carried off the dancing honors among 
the women. She did an eccentric dance that 
proved to be one of the biggest bits in tbe 
show. She is a fascinating little woman, 
with much personal charm.

worth It. 

James Leonard and company and his trav- 
esty. "When Cassar Sees Her," vied with 
Hardeen and Francis McGinn and company 
for headline honors. Jast as ridiculously 
funny as ever Is enough. 

Irene Langford was in No. 3 position. In

He has a stirring song, which he sings un- 
commonly well. In this song he has the 
backing of tbe beauty chorus. Dyllyn ap- 
pears to be getting younger every year. 

Louise Meyers was dainty and charming, 
and ban a pretty duet with ft. Merlon Home, 
who Is tbe possessor of a good tenor voice. 
Tbe duet Is called "Good Nlgbt," and the «

girls, who look and sing well. One of them. 
Gene Ford, is particularly deserving or 
credit. She bas an excellent voice and la 
deserving of better than chorus work. Tbe 
big number. "I Waat to Go to Mexico," was 
the real hit Gus had half a dozen boys 
singing from the box in this offering. The 
two bell boys did well. 

Lewis and Dody, after following Edwards* 
big act, which runs nearly an hour, came on 
and were a riot These two boys have a good 
line of comedy repartee and songs which 
they know bow to put over. 

Flanagan and Edwards present an act en- 
titled "Off and On," first showing them ln 
the room of their hotel after a Dig night, 
then ln the theatre doing their act It's a 
very good act and the boys put H over welt 

Kohler, Morton and Evans company put 
over an act which is nothing but nonsense, 
bits from burlesque and rough-house stuff, 
but the audience ate it up from the amount 
of applause they got 

Alfred Bergen, assisted by a young lady at 
■the piano, offered four numbers In a rich 
baritone voice which was a treat to bear. 

Eddie Borden and Irene Shannon were 
good, particularly Borden, who Is a very 
Sever young fellow. He can sing and dance 
very well. His partner la a rather pretty 
blonde with a good voice. 

The Novelty Clintons comprise a man and 
woman. The man does some great feats 
of jumping through rings, high kicking and 
tumbling. His ending of lumping through 
a hoop Into a suit of clothes wag a good 
piece of business and a dandy finish. 

Monty and Dob did a neat singing and 
dancing act

After tbe H. O. H. Weekly was shown, and 
aroused the usual excitement and interest, 

and the sings' with much charm a 
called "Nothing to Wear," which Is a 


phrase to Raymond Hitchcock's great song 
In "The Beauty Shop," called "All Dressed 
Up and No Place to Go." 

Arthur Deagon played several parts with 
success and sang his two comic songs ex- 
ceedingly well One Is entitled "I'm a 
Statesman," ln which he appeared as Will-

on his arm and the three Swiss yodlers ns vllle.

think Sol's wife's name must be Bose. Aad 
she's away to the country, too. 

"The Cop" shall ue7er lose a bit of its 
goodness so long as it continues to be pre- 
sented as Francis McGinn and company pre- 
sented It bero. Tom Barry wrote some good 
sketch when be wrote "Tbe Cop," around the 
original Officer C60. It is nnrlonbtedly one 
of tbe cleverest sketches dealing with police 
svstcm that has ever been offered to vaude- 

o body guard. The other song Is My Little 
Pet Chicken," which deals with the Broad- 
way product Instead of the barnyard variety. 

George McKay, late of vaudeville ,was. also 
• favorite. He played several "bits" with 
success, and proved to be a very good dancer. 
He baa a song called "I Can't Tango," which 
was well liked. 

The prima donna la Vera Mlcbelena. She 
has an excellent soprano voice, but Is given 
few opportunities to use it She merely 
■walks through tho show. 

Klta Gould singe two songs in excellent 
style. They were "I Love That Man" and 
"Rock Me In tbe Cradle of Love." In the 
last song sbo was accompanied by the male 

Gertrude Vanderbllt has very little to do. 
She sang sweetly a eong called "There's 
Something In the Air In Springtime," which 
was one of tho song hits of tbe evening. 

Herbert Clifton, a female impersonator, 
also aang, bnt bis songs were not new. 

The others In the company have very llttlo 
to do. The production was staged by Mr. 
Brrol, and be deserves praise for his work ln 
this line. 

Rettt and Cbldlnw, with a few new ones 
"put ln" since we last caught them, do well 
on account of Belts' "silly ass" English 
character Mt He's rood, and his partner 
might took more comfortable with that cane 
we spoke about tbe last time caught further 
East on One Hundred' and Twenty-fifth Street. 

Instead of closing tbe bouse for tbe In- 
stallation of new ofebestra chsirs and a 
thorough renovation, Manager Swift Is losing 
some winks working till the wee ran' hours 
auperlntendlng "Just bow this and that must 
bo done." It appears that the H. 0. H. la 
going to put up a stiff fight towards becom- 
ing Harlem's leading vaudeville theatre. Tod.

Big crowds attended the roof performance 
of the house on the Corner Monday night, 
June 8. Tbe program Includes seven hold- 
over acts from last week. Bay Monde 1

If Manager McKee continues to give his 
patrons the kind of acts that he Is present- 
ing this week be will have little trouble ln 
playing to capacity houses. At tbe Monday 
evening performance every seat was occu- 
pied, standing room being at a premium long 
before the start of the entertainment 

lamed, tbe Turkish pianist, although not 
billed as the headllner, easily walked away 
with the 'biggest bit of the evening. He ren- 
dered several classical numbers, and left the 
audience asking for more. 

B. A Bolfe's latest offering, "Tbe Bride's 
Shop," featuring Andrew Tombes, ran their 
usual race. The work of the principal and 
his supporting company <waa good, and their 
efforts met with plenty of applause at the 
conclusion of an amusing skit 

Paul Conchas, assisted by Julius Newman, 
cleaned up as he does in almost every bouse 
he appears. Tho comedy business of New- 
mnn Drought many laughs. 

Homer Lind and his company, presenting 
"Tbe Singing Teacher," bad little to com- 
plain of at the way they were received. The 
skit la Interesting and the singing of several 
of tbe members much enjoyed. 

Conlln, Steele and Carr, replacing Melville 
arid Hrgglns. went over nicely. Singing, dan-

them and they surely showed the patrons

The Famous Players Film Co., through 
Adolph Zukor, its president, has engaged 
Pauline Frederick, one of the most promi- 
nent stars of the American stage, who is to 
be presented In a feature film production of 
Hall Calne's master work, 'The Eternal 
City," to be produced in Italy. This engage- 
ment is one of the most significant ever 
made between a film concern and a legiti- 
mate artiste. 

Miss Frederick called on the Imperater, 
Saturday, June 6, to join Messrs. Porter and 
Ford, who have been in Europe for some 
weeks past producing the feature notion 
picture of "Monsieur Beaucoire," bv Booth 
Tarklngton, with James K. .Hackett la the 
stellar role. Miss Frederick is one of the 
best known emotional actresses of the mod- 
ern stage, and has achieved distinction in a 
series of dramatic successes, most prominent 
among them being "The Little Gray Lady," 
"The Dollar Mark," "The Fourth Estate," 
"The Music Master;" "Samson," "Twenty 
Days In the -Shade," nnd, more recently, 
"Joseph and His Brethren." 

"The Eternal City," universally conceded 
to be Hall Calne's mantelpiece, also ranks 
as one of the greatest literary achievements 
of the past century, and has .been printed In 
every modern language and circulated 
throughout the entire civilized world. The 
environment and atmosphere of Borne and 
the classic backgrounds of this ancient city 
lend themselves admirably to a film por- 
trayal of this famous subject. At the pres- 
ent time Messrs. Porter nnd Ford pre com- 
pleting the production of "Monsieur Beau- 
coire" in Famst, wbeacu Uw will go to 

Borne to> meet Miss Frederick upon her 

arrival. ! ; 


George H. Cbrlstoffers, special representa- 
tive of the Syndicate Film Corporation, who 
have the distributing of ThanhouseT's "Mil- 
lion Dollar Mystery'' serial, is the father of 
a baby boy, Bern May 27. Both the baby 
and his mother who is the sister of MJenon 
Anderson, of Tbanhouser fame, are doing 
nicely. The lad is a ten-pounder. Mr. 
Chrlstoffer Is tue second "Million Dollar 
Mystery" representative to be honored with 
a boy within the month. Both fathers hope 
that the million curse pursues their offspring 
right through, life. 


Marguerite Snow. Countess Olga in "The 
Million Dollar Mystery," has received from 
Col. Sander Badanlvich, the famous St 
Petersburg collector, a fire and one-balf foot 
walking stall. This staff 1b made of a peculiar 
wood very much like ebony, but which re- 
flects various colors when It Is held up to 
the light. Originally the walking staff was 
worn at the Russian court. It Is said to 
have been the Invention of a royal princess 
who used it to disguise? her lameness, conse- 
quent upon aa ankle deformity. From that 
very useful origin the walking staff became 
a fad. It is now seen at the famous spas 
of Europe. 

Miss snow claims the staff, now owned by 
her, and which she carries In "The Million 
Dollar Mystery," is more than fifty years 
old. A peculiar design, half heroic and half 
religious. Is engraved on the cold handle. 
According to Col. Bndlnlvlch. the staff was 
an heirloom sold to the highest bidder when 
political disturbances had broken up the fam- 
ily and scattered its members throughout 
the world. This is given some coaamutitctf

Perhaps the first motion picture feature to 
te installed at Smithsonian Institute will be 
the negative of the Lasky-Uelasco produc- 
tion, '^he Rose t<f the Rancho," which win 
be taken 'midst the old California missions. 


The purpose of giving the film to the insti- 
tute Is to perpetuate the fast crumbling mis- 
sions of tie Pacific State. "The Rose of 

the Rancho" will be taken with some half 
dozen missions a] scenic settings. The films 
will possess rare details of mission and 
mission life which future fenerations can 
look upon as :he actual deletion of Cali-

scope Co., In Los Angeles, was never more 
active or progressive than it is at present. 
Tbe stock company unitedly enlists over a 
hundred people and seven producers, each 
with his Individual company, are continually 
at work utilizing the sunlit boars. MY. 
Sellg, who superintended the start of "Thn 
Adventures of Kathlyn," "Tbe Spoilers" aa» 
other noted films that have made tho name 
famous as a household word, started work 
on "The Boaary," a big seven reel subject 
based upon Rowland A Clifford's melodra- 
matic masterpiece by Edward Hose, which 
baa been a wonderful stage success for many 
seasons. Producer Colin Campbell will have 
charge of this big production, while Kathlyn 
Williams, Charles Clary. Wheeler Oakman 
and other popular players will figure promi- 
nently In the cast, which will be notably 
strong. On the completion of thla play Mr. 
Campbell and his players will voyage to tbe 
Panama Canal Zone, where thuy will visual- 
tie Bex Beach's romance, •The Ne'er Do 
Well." Tbe farsightedness of W. N. Sella 
long ago discerned the possibilities of 
Pnnamn, and for four years peat bis oper- 
atives have secured every Important stage of 
the greatest engineering project the world 
baa ever known, so that tneee important 
records may come In handy in association 
with this new production, which Is claimed 
will rival "The Spoilers." The spirited and 
colorful romance of B. M. Bowers. "Chip of 
tbe Flying U," is being produced in Cali- 
fornia with Tom Mir, the champion cowhoy, 
in tbe leading role, which will sustain tbe 
leadership of tbe diamond S brand in the 
Western line. 

TbomaB Snntsciii, who has been associated 
with the Sellg Stock Company longer than 
any other actor, has been appointed a pro- 
ducer, a position well earned both for faith- 
fulness and artistic capacity. Bessie Eyton, 
another well known member of the organiza- 
tion, will soon appear as the heroine in a 
series of unique and attractive playa. She 
has a gift for comedy as well as emotional- 
ism, and Is remarkably resourceful in ac- 
complishing the dangerous tasks that may 
fall to the lot of the picturo player. This 
new series is of marine character, and will 
show daring as a swimmer and her skill as 
a sailor. 

The Sellg Zoo a most desirable tract of 
fifty acres, situated In the city of Los An- 
geles, Is being placed within attractive bound- 
ary walls, and will have an Imposing Interest 
as unique as It Is artistically attractive. This 
tmpovement, which ins been under way for 
considerable time, will be completed some 
time In September, and will certainly give 
Loa Angeles tbe most remarkable zoo In the 
country. Mr. Sellg has alreadv the largest 
collection of carnlvora of any similar estab- 
lishment In tbe world and Is constantly add- 
ing the rarest types of afl wild animals to 
this remarkable menagerie. In addition to 
tbe fauna of many cones, the flora of tbe 
6elt(T Zoo Will compare favorably with any of 
the famous botanical gardens. Arthur Ben- 
ton, architect of tbe famous Mission Inn, at 
Riverside, Cal., has all tbe architectural plan- 
ning associated with tbe Improvements of 
tbe aoo. and will make them harmonious and 
Attractive. Signer Carlor Romanelll, tbe 
Italian sculptor, wbo has made a record in 
Chicago, is on the ground modeling a series 
of arched entrance, end make tbe facade al- 
together Interesting and Imposing. A num- 
ber of these animal groups have been de- 
signed with a view to fountain forms, and be 
placed at advantageous intervals on one 

John 0. Robinson, of Cincinnati, of tbe 
famous circus family, who for half a century 
have ministered tbe entertainment of tbe 
country, a man particularly versed with all 
that pertains to too making and keening up 
a fine menagerie, baa been engaged for this 
service at the Sellg Zoo, and the result of 
ids care and selection la showing in tbe 
finest aggregation of wild anlmt.1* In cap- 
tivity. Some idea of the else of this col- 
lection may be gleaned when It it stated that 
Mr. Sellg owns now over four score lions, 
sixteen tigers, twenty leopards (Including a 
pair of rare black leopards), not to remark 
Mars, wolveB and the smaller carnlvora. In 
tbe herblvora class he has a pair of beautiful 
giraffes, six elephants, fifteen camels, two 
pair or sebrae — some fine blooded horse 
stock, Including a fine Arabian stallion. 
With the elaborate plana of this Sellg enter 
prise only partially complete, It looks as 
though It were destined to become tbe most 
famous wild animal too.

of every man and woman connected with the

rawing, and has only recently acquired a 
biplane with no other motive In view tban 
the outdoor sport It will afford.

doable and even trkple photographic effect*. 
Tbe play Is from the pen of George Hall, and 
in feeing produced by Mr. Baggot himself. 


When tbe enlarsement and refitting of 
the Imp studio Is completed, sil the present 
scenery at tbe studio will have been replaced 
with new and considerably Improved sets. 
Also, all tbe lighting systems win have been 
remodeled, a fact that will materially Im- 
prove what with the new developing plant

The director of the Eclair etudlo at Tuc-

UtBt few days for forty bull snakes, a strange 
sort of property, to be sure, but they are 
absolutely necessary to the filming of an O.

with his customary desire for true atmos-

that all of the players around the Tucson

Maurice Brodkln, of the Dmby Feature 
Film Co., of Neir York, ■would ltke very much 
to relieve th-i Itala Film Co. of America, of 
which Harry B. Haver Is the director gen- 
eral, of the tidy sum or $50,000. 

Not piastres, rubles or ponrtolky's. but good 
old Yankee stmoleons, and not a cent less 
than 50,000 either. 

Mr. Brodkln's yearning In this regard Is 
tbe cause of a lawsuit Instituted last week 
by aim in the Supreme Court against the 
Itala concern. Specifically alleging that he 
deems "Cablria," which wonderful photo- 
spectacle is the prime cause of the litigation, 
a "general" release, Brodkln asserts In the 
court papers, that Inasmuch as he holds a 
territorial contract for all of the Itala Cc's 

feneral releases that he bas been damaged 
o that extent by not being allowed to dis- 
tribute and exhibit, the big production lu 
question. Furthermore, tbe plaintiff asks an 
lnjnnctlon restraining the further exposition 
of the feature now playing to capacity at 
tbe Knickerbocker Theatre, at Broadway and 
Tblrty-nlnth Street. New York. 

Werba A Luescber control tbe American 
rights. Arthur Bell Gkaham Is the attorney 
engaged to defend the action for tbe Itala 

The chief question Involved seems to be 
tbe interpretation of tbe term "general re- 
lease." Tbe concensus of opinion among New 
York film men Is that "Cablria" does not 
come under tbe head of wbat Is commonly 
termed a "general" release, but Is most de- 
cidedly a "special" of the first grade.. How- 
ever, the Supreme Court will determine tbe 
issue in tbe coarse of the next few weeks.

The New York Motion Picture Co. has just 
completed an ambitious effort In a motion 
picture of most pretentious proportions. It 
Is a sensational spectacle, entitled "The De- 
struction of &skurarJla>a ; or, tbe Wrath of 
the Gods." The photoplay was produced 
under the personal direction of Thos. H. 
luce, wno was responsible tor tbe successful 
feature productions now famous and known 
under the titles of "The Battle of Gettys- 
burg" and "Cutter's Last Fight." 

For some months past Manager Ince has 
teen gathering together tbe performers for 
this stupendous offering, which shows tbe 
volcano In action, with lava flowing, ashes 
falling, bouces crumbling, whole villages 
burning and the pandemonium attending 
such catastrophes. An entire Japanese com- 
pany was engaged for tbe production, among 
which Is said to be some of the cleverest 
actor and actreases of the Flowery Kingdom, 
and who are famous In their own country.

Offices were opened in New York City, Fri- 
day. June 5, by the Mott-Le-Galge Animated 
Advertising Company, a corporation formed 
bv gome of the best known figures In the 
theatrical world. Messrs. Sam H. Harris, 
Mortimer Shea, Crosby Gatge and Jack 
Welsh, general manager for Conan & Harris, 
are among those financially Interested. 

The M. L. G. Co. controls a rather re- 
markable automatic machine for the projec- 
tion of moving picture advertising in natural 
colors. By the use of a very Inexpensive and 
ingenious glass slide, photographic negatives 
taken from life are super-imposed, one over 
the other. In a war that produces an ex- 
tremely brilliant colored moving picture, th* 
translucent properties of tie glass far sur- 
passing those of any film yet devised. By 
means of this device the article advertised 
Is shown In actual use. and as complete a 
demonstration of that use given to the ob- 
server as though a salesman were demon- 
strating tbe artiele to a customer. It la 
rather startling to see tbe nationally known 
advertisements popularized by newspapers and 
magazines, actually moving and going through 
all tbe motion of real life. The pictures, 
because ot their brilliancy and lifelike colors, 
are expected to compete in Interest with tbe 
regular "movie" films when shown as intended 
in the higher grade moving picture houses. 

These pictures show equally well in .a 
darkened room or In full daylight, as th* 
show window of a store and the company I* 
confident that they will to a large extent, 
revolutionize tbe business-science of adver- 
tising, as the machine gives an actual demon- 
stration of the advertised article In use In a 
way which letter press can never accomplish. 

The machine will be a prominent feature 
of the moving picture exposition held at the 
Grand Central Palace this week.

•PAtnjicg Bosh writes from a ranch that 
tier holiday is nearlng Its end, and that she 
has added- considerable poundage. She has 
been writing a series of psychological ar- 
ticles for one of the prominent magazines. 
These are published under a pen name, and 
ere remarkable for their thought and in- 
eight Miss Bush Is one of the most Intel- 
lectual actresses on the tcreen. and certainly 
one of the moat earnest and deserting. 

William D. Tatlob, now filling a special 
engagement with tbe Balboa Company, baa 
received a contract to write three vaudeville 
sketches, one of which is for the Orpheom 
circuit. It la not generally known that Mr. 
Taylor haa written a number of successful 
sketches including "The Mills of tbe Gods," 
or tbst'he 1» engaged upon a psychological 
three-act play which may make its first ap- 
pearance In Los Angeles. He is also the 
author of several photoplays. .... _ 

Wiibv J. P. McGowah, of the Kalem. Co., 
selected Helen Holmes as his leading woman, 
be made a wise choice. He acknowledges 
that be ran a risk, for Miss Holmes was 
better known in tbe Artists' than the mo- 
tion picture studios, and her beautiful face 
and figure are depicted upon Boveral famous 
canvasses. Director McGowan had a talk 
with tbe ambitious voting womnn and en- 
gaged her, and Helen Holmes has far sur- 
passed his anticipation and is one of tbe 
most popular artistes on the screen. 

Wubn Carlyle Blackwell reached New Yor* 
from Los Angeles recently he found that his 
change from the Kalem to th9 Famous Play- 
ers bad been widely heralded, and one hun- 
dred and sixty-five letters of congratulation 
awaited him, which goes to show how keenly 
photo-fans follow their favorites' movements 
and keep in touch with them. 

Gbacb Cukaid underwent an operation at 
the Sisters' Hospital tbls week, and was out 
of the "Lucille company for several days. 
Before going she and Francis Ford put in 
two strenuous days taking the scenes in 
which Grace appeared. "Lucille Love" with- 
out Lucille seems like "Hamlet" without the 
melancholy Dane. Francis Ford hai worked 
up a very interesting "No. 11," with tbe 
Mexican troubles for atmosphere. 

Habbt Pollabd Is producing an interest- 
ing photoplay for the "Beauty" brand, en- 
titled "The Other Train," and in it Mar- 
garita Fischer takes a character which starts 
with girlhood and goes through to old age. 
Mr. Pollard atitoed to Los Angeles and back 
last Saturday to obtrln special costumes for 
this production. Tbe roads between Los 
Angeles and Santa Barbara are In fine con- 
dition, and Harry enjoyed the Jaant. 

Bess Meredith Is spending a few days at 
Catalina Island, where the natives are wont 
to be surprised at her many disguise*, for 
she Is BtiU "Bess, tbe Detectress, hounding 
down villains who annoyloglv turn out to 
ho very unoffending parties. Last week she 
wore a full beard for the first time. "Never 
again." says Bess, "baards taste very nasty. 
Just like old fashioned hair mattresses 1" 
Tie "Bess" series are making quite a hit 

EnvA Maison Is being featured la a strong 
military story, under t'.io direction of Charles 
Glblln. Edna has a fine acting part as a 
secret service woman, and there Is no better 
actress en tbe screen when it comes to re- 
pressed or expressed emotions. The Universal 
are outlining some big things for tbls really 
fine performer 

Cleo Madison's burned feet are not nor- 
mal yet. but she Is hard at work again. 
"Can't afford to be idle," she says. She Is 
at present entertaining a brother and his 
wife, who never saw a picture In tho making 
before. They tell Cleo that she Is a popular 
Idol in their home city, and jxnt-caras of 
her are given away frequently by the thea- 

Harold Lockwood is very enthusiastic 
over his part In "The County Chairman," 
and is just as enthuoed over his director, 
Allan Dwan, who was recently with tbe 
Universal. Lockwood has an ideal part for 
him, and bis work with the Famous Players 
ever since he started to play opposite Mary 
Plckford baa sbown a remarkable advance. 
This Is due both to tbe actor and his di-

ing does on a dosen or more theatres, or the 
same number of productions, strains! another mem- 
ber who bed but a single theatre or production, or 
perhaps two. The matter was referred to the 
newly appointed committee.

Howard Kyle, recording secretary of the Actors'

way, that no demands bad been marie el the 
asaaagers' organisations, rnd be said ha did not 
believe it would bojeceswiry to meke any de- 
mands, because be Dad alwaya found the mana- 
gers willing to make any reasonable concessions, 

"Tbe trouble has been," be aald, "where there 
baa been trouble thst there has been no organisa- 
tion of either the actors t.r the managers. With 
both sides organised we will know where to go to 
make a complaint. It ve have any to make, and 
the managers know where llii-y can find as. I be- 
lieve the organisation! will bring greiter harmony, 

"A strike would be too lsst resort sfter every 
other mesns had failed. That Is why we are 
getting the sctors to sgree to stand firmly to- 

gther, so thst in a yesr or two, If we should bare 
make demands to get our rights, we could 
show a solidarity that would compel results, even 
If a strike hsd to be resorted to." 

Kyle ssld the organisation of tbe Actors Equity 
Leagne was completed In May of last year, and 
that It now has core rbaa 1,000 members. More 
than SSO tnamhera have slxned tbe circular pledg- 
ing that tbey will stand tognber ,'n tbe demand 
for a uniform contract. Since *be organiiatiea 
of the leagne s number of grievances have been 
settled between manager* and Individual actors, 
Kyle ssld. He recalled that in thee* Instances 
tho league took the side of tbe managers against 
tha acton because the counsel of the league de- 
cided tho actors were In tho wrong.

It. L. Lohrror. — lour friends la Caere,

Carnival Manauebs. — The title "World's 
Greatest Shows" Is morally the property of 
tbe Singling Brothers' Circus. There are no 
"world's greatest shows" in the carnival 
business. A carnival Is not technically a 
"show," but is a distinctive form of amuse- 
ment. If yon managers would call your 
organizations "world's greatest carnivals" 
that would be all right Do you grasp It?

shortly. Walt and see. 

Notice that nearly all the "big" inde- 
pendent carnival showmen are beginning to 
flock to tbe "big" established organizations. 
Had you noticed or contemplated the 
changes? Why te surprised? It happens 
every season. It's one of the weak spots of 
the game.

One person at any rate Is never In doubt 
.,3 to tie Taioc and lmportanro of Israel 
/angwlU's plays. That is Israel Zangwtll. 
\ week ago he complacently remarked ot 
■•I foster Saints," which was produced at the 
comedy Theatre on Saturday, that It would 
surely provoke a controversy. Bit It has 
■iot done so. It has been recelced by tie 
i rltles with much restraint, merely as a play 
.if toe second crass; certainly not as a coal- 
l*nge to a controversy. Its craftsmanship 
is faulty. Its humor Is trivial, lis satire li 
too savage. It Is curiously rich In lines which 
(crept the audience to laugh at (he author, 
not with him. As lor Instance, when a 
woman comes to a clerygyman to unpack her 
troubled soul of a confession, he eays "let 
me get you a glass of water." 

Dr. Rodney Vaughan, a non-conforming 
(Urine, Is the dominant figure of the play. 
Dr. Vaughan was an eloquent preacher an! 
busy social worker. Incidentally be was an 
ti; terminable talker. He bad a common In- 
trigue with his typist, who toft his employ- 
ment to bear n child. Eventually this came 
to the ears of his wife, an overt-prudish 
woman, who only e»w one course open to 
him. He must make public confession of his 
sin. must submit to a divorce and marry the 
tvplst It was the typist herself who settle! 
the question. She had probably been to see 
•Hlndlc Wakes;" at any rate, she had no 
further use for Dr. Vaughnn, snd married 
elsewhere. Still, Mrs. Vaughan said there 
must be public admission of the wrong doing 
i'"i expiation. Dr. Vaughnn raid no, but 
said it at great length. His point was that, 
as a sinner, he knew how to deal with sin, 
therefore It was for the good of the com- 
munity that oe should appear In his pulpl f . 
with unshaken credit His pretty daughter's 
love-match saved the situation ; for ber sake 
Mrs. Vaughan agreed to be silent, and so 
the play ended In a few words "Plaster 
Saints" discredits the clergy for no public 
■rood, and does not even make a good play 
In the process. 

Jerome K. Jerome tried to work on a 
plane too high for his mental and mechanical 
equipment when he wrote "The Great 
Gamble," produced at the Haymarket on 
Thursday last. The result Is a very tire- 
some play, redeemed by an occasional glimpse 
of humor. Mr. Jerome meant. It Is plain, to 
be picturesque snd philosophical and fantns- 
lie and lust a little daring, but he does not 
rcal're his ambitions. The scene Is a beer 
garden on the outskirts of a German univer- 
sity town. Student life has formed the char- 
acters of most of the persons represented. 
Students hover in the distance, the retrains 
of their song point the moral and adorn the 
tale. The aged Scottish lady woo kept the 
garden nurtured a beautiful girl, a relative, 
as to whose past there Is a mystery. It Is 
no more than that her mother, supposed to 
he dead, Is an outcast. The maid is beloved 
by a young American who Is silent, because, 
In his life, too, there Is a shameful secret 
It Is father was a crook. The foolish chit 
dren bridge over this preposterous gulf, of 
course. Store lnterestlnfg than this elabo- 
rate romance Is the comic underplot. An 
amorous colonel ran away impulsively with 
the moon-struck wife of a London tradesman, 
and Immediately regretted his Quixotic act 
After an amusing process of adventure he 
restored her to her husband, whom be was 
able to. assure that all the tine he had re- 
spected her as he might have done his own 
sister t 

"A Little Lamb," the faro' from the German 
which PMllp Mlchiel Ftradiy produced at the 
Apollo Theatre on Thursday, Is of the btd, old 
Criterion kind. Probably ruthless excisions from 
the original hare made the remnant poor and 
erode. Bat In his time Arthur Wltnperls hi* 
written good dialogue; not so In this case. The 
"Little Lamb" from whom the play takes lis 
name Is the -nysterloos offspring or a Spanish 
dtnoer who, having bad an affair with each of 
several gentlemen who ought to hare known 
Utter, circulated among them the picture of a 
child with the Inscription : "Hen! I am, yonr 
little Lamb." In return she secured from her 
terrorised admirers a series of Incomes. Twenty- 
five years are supposed to have elapsed before the 
dramatist takes up the tale. Madame Dubonnet 
had meanwhile become the dominant figure of the 
little circle of reprobates. Monsieur Dubonnet 
was a mustard manufacturer. His calling was 
selected apparently with the object of per- 
mitting the dramatist to get In a little humor 
about "hot stuff." Madame Dubonnet was a 
dragon of virtue. She ran a purity league. 
The four or Are or six elderly gentlemen who 
believed themselves to be responsible tor the 
little Lamb — It boots not to count them ex* 
actly — were all unwilling members of madame's 
league. Additionally, there was a smart young 
lawyer who wanted to marry Dubonuet'a daughter. 
He was not acceptable to the family. But he 
got bold of the little lamb story, and with s 
shameful disregard for the amenities of his pro- 
fession coerced Dubonnet to consent. The supreme 
Joke will have been guessed by the experienced 
playgoer. There never was a little lamb. The 
Spanish dancer hsd fooled them all 'round. Al- 
though, for the humorous development of the play, 
an asslnlne youth Is made to address everybody 
as papa. Tbe audience assembled In the Apollo 
Theatre on Thursday laughed freely, and the play 
waa enacted rather better than It deserved.

Carnival Manauebs. — The title "World's 
Greatest Shows" is morally the property of 
tbe Rlngllng Brothers' Circus. There are no 
"world's greatest shows" in the carnival 
business. A carnival is not technically a 
"show," but is a distinctive form of amuse- 
ment- If you managers would call your 
organizations "world's greatest carnivals" 
that would be all right Do you grasp it?

What has become of the "Frolic" rides? 
Have aay of the carnivals got tbem this 
season? If bo, make a noise about it.

One person s.t any rate la never In doubt 
■.. to the value and Importance of Israel 
/nugwIITs plays. That is Israel Zangwlll. 
\ week ago he complacently remarked ot 
•■Plaster 8atot«," Which was produced at the 
I'oaicdy Theatre on Saturday, that It would 
surely provoke a controversy. But It has 
■iot done so. It has been recelced by the 
critics with nrnch restraint, merely es a play 
<•( the second class ; certainly not as a chal- 
lenge to a controversy. Its craftsmanship 
is faulty. Its humor Is trivial. Its satire it 
too savage, tt Is curiously rich In lines which 
leapt the audience to laugh at Ihe author, 
not with htm. As. for Instance, when a 
woraan comes to a cterytryman to unpack her 
troubled soul of a confession, he says "let 
me get yon a glass of water." 

Dr. Rodney Vanghan, a non-conforming 
.V.rinc, Is the dominant figure of the play. 
Dr. Vaceban was an eloquent preacher an 1 
busy social worker. Incidentally he was an 
ti.termlnable talker. He had a common In- 
trigue with his typist, who left his employ- 
ment to bear n rhild. Eventually this came 
to the ears of his wife, an urer prudish 
woman, who only saw one course open to 
him. He must make public confession of his 
sin. most submit to a divorce and marry the 
trplst It was the typist herself who settled 
Hie question. She had probably been to see 
"lllndle Wakes;" at any rate, she bad no 
further use for Dr. Vaujrhan, and married 
elsewhere. StIU, Mrs. Vaugban said there 
must be public admission of the wrong doing 
ago expiation. Dr. Vanghan mid no. but 
sild it at great length. His point was that, 
as a sinner, be knew how to deal with sin, 
therefore It was for the good of the com- 
munity that De should appear In his pulp)*. 
with unshaken credit His pretty daughter's 
love-match saved the situation ; for ber sake 
lire. Vanghan agreed, to be silent, and so 
the play ended In a few words. "Plaster 

good, and does not even make a go 


Jerome K- Jerome tried to work on a 
plane too high for his mental and mechanical 
equipment wlicn he wrote "The Great 
Gamble," produced at the Haymarket on 
Thursday last The result Is a very tire- 
some p'ay, redeemed by an occasional glimpse 
of humor. Mr. Jerome meant, It Is plain, to 
be picturesque and philosophical and fantcs- 
ilc. and lust a little daring, but he docs not 
rcal'Ke bis ambitions. Tbe scene is a beer 
garden on the outskirts of a German univer- 
sity town. Student life has formed the char- 
acters of most of the persons represented. 
Students hover in the distance, tbe refrains 
of their song point the moral and adom the 
tale. The aged Scottish lady wno kept the 
garden nurtured a beautiful girl, a relative, 
as to whose past there Is a mystery. It Is 
no more than that her mother, supposed to 
be dead. Is an outcast. The maid Is beloved 
by a young American who Is silent, because, 
In his life, too, there is a shameful secret 
It Is father was a crook. The foolish chit 
dren bridge over this preposterous gulf of 
course. More interesting than this elabo- 
rate romance Is the comic underplot An 
amorous colonel ran away impulsively with 
the moon-struck wife of a London tradesman, 
and Immediately regretted his Quixotic act 
After an amusing process of adventure he 
restored her to her husband, whom he ms 
able to. assure that all the time he had re- 
spected her as he might have done his own 
Bister I 

"A Little Lamb," the ferco from tbe German 
which Philip Michael Faraday produced at the 
Apollo Theatre on Thursday, la of the bad, old 
Criterion kind. Probably ruthless excisions from 
tbe original have made the remnant poor and 
crude. But In his time Arthur Wlmperli lu 
written good dialogue; not so In this case. Tbe 
'Little Lamb" from whom the play takes lis 
name la the Hystericus offspring of a Spanish 
dancer who, having had an affair with each of 
several gentlemen who ought to have known 
tetter, circulated anions (hem the picture of a 
child with the inscription: "Here 1 am, your 
little Lamb." In return she secured from her 
terrorised admirers a series of Incomes. Twenty- 
fire years are supposed to hare elapsed before tbe 
dramatist take, up the tale. Madame Dubonnet 
had meanwhile become the dominant llgnre of the 
little circle ot reprobates. Monsieur Dubonnet 
was a mustard manufacturer. His calling was 
selected apparently with the object of per- 
mitting the dramatist to get In a little humor 
■boat "hot sluff." Madame Dubonnet was a 
dragon of virtue. She ran a purity league. 
The four or Ave or six elderly gentlemen who 
believed themselves to be responsible for the 
little Lamb — It boots not to count them ex- 
actly — iwere all unwilling members of madame's 
league. Additionally, there was a smart young 
lawyer who wanted to marry Dubonnet's daughter. 
Be was not acceptable to the family. But he 
got hold of the little lamb story, and with a 
shameful disregard for the amenities ot his pro- 
fession coerced Dubonnet to consent. The supreme 
Joke will have been guessed by the experienced 
playgoer. There never was a little lamb. The 
Spanish dancer had fooled them all 'round. Al- 
though, for the humorous development of tbe play, 
an asslnlne youth I. made to address everybody 
as papa. The audience assembled In the Apollo 
Theatre on Thursday laughed freely, and the play 
was enacted rather better than It deserved.

ient for the Professional Woman 

There Is no troublo at all In removing un- 
sightly hair growths with Rl Undo— no mix- 
ins' of powders or mussing with pastes. 
Yon simply saturato the hair with tho liquid ; 
In • moment or two It becomes dissolved, 
and after washing off with a llttlo plain 
water not a trace of the hair will remain. 
In place of tho undesirable hair growth, on 
face, neck or under the arms, all you see la 
smooth, clear, velvety akin. 

The quick, thorough, harmless action of 
El Rado has made It a great favorite among 
society women everywhere. They now re- 
gard It as indispensable a toilet preparation 
aa cold cream or faco powder. The fact that 
many physician*, use the Ingredients In HI 
Rado for exactly tho game purpose, hair re- 
moving, allows conclusively how perfectly 
safe It is. 

Buy a bottle of Rl Rado and test it on 
your arm; if you are not entirely pleased 
with tbe result, your money will be refunded 
without question, in flop, and ffl.OO sixes.

Ami. 80. 

TiiBiTB* Rotai, (J. C. Williamson, Ltd.) 
— The fame of the I>rury Lone drama. 
"Sealed Orden," having preceded It from 
London, little wonder (hat this theatre was 
picked In every part cm Saturday, April 25. 
The play la one of the beat of the Drury 
Lane dramas, and this la saying a good deal. 
It possesses a joowrcful j-iot, and the story 
Is well told. The following rendered excel- 
lent service: Btlicl Warwick. Beatrice Day, 
and Messrs. O'Ncll. Pluramer, Lincoln, Tearlc, 
Bryant and Cambourne, with c liost of auxll- 
liarlea. There are aldo many magnificent 
scenic effects, which include the deck of a 
Erltlsh man-o'-war, the Chelsea Embankment, 
the Klower Show. Hatton Garden, the Burg- 
lary, etc., etc The performance as a whole 
Is one of all round excellence. 

iIkb Majesty's (J. C. Williamson, Ltd.) 
— Ijerge and delighted audience* nightly 
greet s The Forty Thieves." Saturday night, 
April 25, being no exception to the rule. 
from rise to fall of curtain Is one long pro- 
cession of good things, nenutlful ballads, 
dances, marches, groupings, etc.. while the 
fun. In the hands of Harry Luplno and I'd- 
win Brett, never tings for a moment. The 
charming costumes and gorgeous and kaleido- 
scopic scenery arc nluo worthy of the warm- 
ist praise and commendation. 

Little Theatric (Hugh Buckler, lessee). 
— Hugh Buckler and Violet Pag*t. with their 
clever company are at prevent treating their 

ritrons to a very fine portrayal of "The Gay 
ord Qucx." Indeed, the I'lncro play has 
prnbobl> never l<cen given n hotter all round 
production than It Is receiving at present. 
The house was crowded last night, and 
heartily applauded tho p-.'ifonncni. 
C'wtebiok (J. C. WIUIaniEon, Lid.)— Fred 

meat, frolic and fun. are the wonderful per- 
formance of the Ellljct-Savonas, In their 
elaborate) nmalclscena ; Billy Fields, the Jug- 
gling anient humorist; the Shtntons, In tlvir 
spectacular vocal dancing turn, and Mile. 
Marguerite and Frank GUI, In ballroom tango 
dances. Kosa Roma, the gypsy vlolonlst, 
continues popular, and gave a welcome 
change of program, which was pleasing and 
artistic. The Five Merry Youngsters have 
returned, vastly improved, showing more 
pace and energy In their business. Bam 
Htcarn, English character comedian, and 
Marshall Crosby, baritone ball ad 1st, are the 
remaining favorites, who fill the bll to per- 

National (Fnller-Bronnan. Ltd.) — There 
were four popular re-appearances and one 
rtw turn at this vaudeville show on Satur- 
day. April 25. The new comers were the 
K-nuts. a trio of vocalists, who gave a smart 
net but their harmonizing was far from 
being perfect. The reappearances were 
1-Vrn and Llzette, ragtlm-j duo ; Fernandez 
and May, eccentric musicians, whose tum 
went specially well : the Georgia Trio, sing- 
ing comedians and dancers, and Hilary Long. 
Km loop the loop artist, who throws somer- 
saults up and down a (light of stairs. Other 
performers who make good are : Vemadc, 
I lie scrobat; La France, dissolving view art- 
ist. Tango dancing by Carl Bcntzen and 
I'liyllls Lawton ; Denis Carney, the York- 
shire comedian, while the dramatic sketch 
work of Fred C. Hagan and company con- 
tinues to he the star act of the MIL 

Sydney Notes. 

William IlAUBtoAN, a light comcdlnu, who 
arrived today oy the fl. 8. I'tnlura, to play 
In the J. (.'. Williamson dramatic comi>anles. 
lms done good work In Amnion, wlr-re his 
father, lsdward Harrlgan (we+1 do I remem- 
ber him) played for over thirty years with 

the Law" company. "Madame X" Is sombre 
no doubt, and is drawn hi grey tones all 
through, but evidently tie public are eager 
for tragedy when It Is powerfully portrayed, 
oi in this case. 

Kino's Thbatkb (Wm. Anderson lessee). 
— The Bert Bailey management nave no 
cause to regret having added "What Hap- 
pened to Mary" to their repertoire. The 
play has a grip which holds the audience 
from start to finish. Capacity business rules 
ot this house. 

Tivoli (H. D. Mcintosh, governing direc- 
tor). — The m»re one sees of Ada Bceve at 
this house of amusement the more ono I Ikes 
her. She lias a charm which Is ail her own, 
and her versatility Is a thing to marvel at. 
It isn't that she la possessed of any extraor- 
dinary vocal powers. In fact, there have been 
heaps of comediennes from time to time in 
Australia with better voices, but Miss Reeve ts 
not only a singer, but a connitnmate actress 
as wen. The other members of tho ■umpaiiy 
are: The Golden Athlon**, Tucker, the sing- 
ing violinist ; Rusell Carr, ventriloquist : Vera 
llociidale, serlo uud dancer, aad other*.. 

Pbincekb (J. & T. Tate, ■cssces). — Harry 
I>auder has been drawing crowded houses 
here, and patrons have come from even re- 
mote country districts. Scotchmen scran al- 
most to worship him, nnd attend in large 
numbers every pcrformsn.-e. The other Mem- 
bers of the company are greatly appreciated. 

Bijod (Futler-Brennan, Ltd.) — There are 
several good things here tbls week, and the 
program continues to maintain a high stand- 
ard. Chief amoDK the new comers ere Rifle 
Fay and Howard s bears and dogs. Elflt Is 
a young lady with the most mobile counte- 
nance we have observed in any Artist In her 
line to date. She Is gifted with repartee

Ada Ilccve'i Reception. 

A remarkable reception was given to Ada 
Koeve on Saturday night, April 18, ut the 
Tivoli, Melbourne. The audience packed the 
house from lioor to celling, nnd even then 
hundreds of disappointed ones bad to be 
sent awry. Tho booking was extraordinary. 
Ihe Thursday night preceding there wis nn 
interesting meodig bctwttn tue two gicatest 
vaudeville artists in Australia to-day. Mr. 
and Mra Harry Lauder were In the box at 
the Tivoli, and were afterwards entertained 
to supper by the only ii. D. Mcintosh. It 
was then that the pcoricss Scotch comedian 
and the "Queen of Comedy," who are In a 
way, rivals after the applause of Australian 
audiences, met lu quite an amusing minncr, 
and chatted over their latter-day experiences. 
Mr. Lauder wlto had olieedy seen tbc per- 
formance at, tho Tivoli, Sydney, expressed 
bimsc-lf that the program? he bad seen at 
the two T9voll Theatres could not be im- 
proved upon in any part of the world. He 
was highly gratified with the class of pro- 
gram provided by II. D. Mcintosh for his 
theatres In Australia. 
Harry Lauder's Melboarne Triumph. 

Harry Lauder, the great Scotch come- 
dian. Is achieving a most ccnsatlonal success 
In Melbourne. The whole of the Melbourne 
press refers to him in cordial and compli- 
mentary terms The Herald says: "When 
Harry Ijudcr faced th» packed audience at 
tho Princess on Saturday night ha took a big 
risk. He stood In a somewhat similar po- 
sition to that of the manager who produced 
Tlamlet' and vraa met hy a new-lli'ilged 
critic who remarked that It was surfed full 
of quotations. Ilia songs and speeches hive 
teen distributed all over Australia by other 
clever artists and by means of the talking 
machines and Id picture shows, and conse- 
quently every woro was more familiar than 
the quotations in 'Hamlet' to that audience. 
Pel he was the conqueror and the fact of 
hU triumph was proclaimed In unmistakable 
tcttns." The Argue says: 'He has a whole 
battery of methods at lili eemmand, nnd lit 
kaet each In turn with unerring effect."

until they seem like one long trick. They are 
all separate Items, the details In the detailed 
account, and they all lad to be practised, 
and practised, and practised until they were 
perfect. It has taken Mr. Fields seventeen 
years to bring his show up to its pre&ent
